Program for Two Weekend Course

The time table in this program has been arranged on the assumption that catering will be centralized, but that Patrols will do their own cooking, except for tea each day, which will be prepared and served centrally.

If all meals are provided by a Service Patrol, times should be adjusted as necessary with a considerable gain for actual training periods.

For non residential weekend Courses, see One Weekend Course notes.
