A full training programme will be issued to all participating cadets. You will need to pass our strict map reading and navigational requirement before you can proceed onto the expeditions, so it's in your best interests to make sure you are attending as many parade nights as possible.

If you don't yet have hiking boots, we strongly advise you to purchase some at least two months before the practice expedition, so you feel comfortable in walking in the boots and to ensure you can particiapate in all the training days. Please ask the Award Officer for more information about purchasing hiking boots. Don't forget your 10% discount at Millets and Cotswold when you show your F3822!
