Expeditions - Ideas For possible Expeditions
All candidates at all levels will be expected to complete the hiking training offered. The reasons for this are that regardless of the assessment expedition undertaken, basic skills such as navigation, leave no trace, cooking skills etc will be required.
All Bronze candidates must do the hiking expedition. It is not possible for Bronze candidates to undertake any other expedition assessment.
For Silver and Gold candidates it is possible to undertake expedition other than the 'normal' hiking expeditions. Students are actively encouraged to come up with their own expedition ideas! Student wishing to undertake such expeditions may have to complete additional training to ensure that any additional skills necessary to are acquired prior to the assessment. The cost of normal hiking expeditions, held in the local vacinity, is included in the IA subscription.* The cost of any other expeditions will be borne by the participants in addition to their normal IA inscription fees.
