The Air Training Corps undertakes many of its activities out of doors,
ranging from Duke of Edinburgh award expeditions to day walks, navigation
exercises and "green" camps. BELA is becoming the minimum nationally
recognised qualification for anyone responsible for training and supervising
groups for these activities. If your unit does navigation exercises, Duke
of Edinburgh award expeditions (bronze or silver), camping trips or green camps,
you will need someone with at least a BELA qualification to train the cadets and
supervise the activity.
The Herts & Bucks Wing adventure training group has been working to
establish BELA training within the wing, and is currently seeking accreditation
as a course provider.
