ONLINE LEARNING

We have designed and developed an online expedition learning platform. This can be used to replace the first day of skills training designed to be fun, engaging and informative. Students can complete it on desktop or mobile devices, in their own time to ensure they are well prepared by the time their practical training and expeditions come around.

Bite-sized learning with activities, quizzes, videos, images and original content will keep them engaged throughout.
