Duke of Edinburgh Training
Delivering the Duke of Edinburgh syllabus in a way that ‘makes sense’, our training sessions teach you the hands-on skills needed to succeed on your practice and qualifying journeys.
At Bronze and Silver levels, you can do your training stage online. But you can only do this for one of the levels. For example, if you choose to do online training at Bronze level, you must do practical, hands-on training at Silver and Gold. This helps you survive and thrive in New Zealand’s great outdoors.
Taking place either at school or in a local park, our Bronze, Silver and Gold training sessions consist of a small walk with a big focus on learning. In a fun and encouraging environment, you’ll train all parts of the syllabus, which includes:
First aid and emergency procedures
An awareness of risk and health and safety issues
Navigation and route planning
Campcraft, equipment and hygiene
Food and cooking
Country, highway and water safety (as appropriate)
Observation and recording
Proficiency in the mode of travel
Environmental impact and awareness.
