Level Duration Minimum hours of planned activity each day
BRONZE 2 days and 1 night At least 6 hours during the daytime (at least 3 of which must be spent journeying)
SILVER 3 days and 2 nights At least 7 hours during the daytime (at least 3½ of which must be spent journeying)
GOLD 4 days and 3 nights At least 8 hours during the daytime (at least 4 of which must be spent journeying)

Notes: Time associated with overnight accommodation and catering is additional to the minimum daytime hours of planned activity. You have to undertake at least one practice expedition as part of your training. This may be more closely supervised than your final assessed expedition, which is remotely supervised to develop independence and a sense of personal responsibility.
