Summary:

Our popular Bronze NNAS Beginner Navigation Course is the perfect introduction to the art of navigation. Over the two days you will gain valuable experience of the skills you need to successfully plan and follow walks of your own devising. The course is practical and features as much time out on the hills as possible giving you plenty of opportunity to practise and gain advice and encouragement from our experiencedinstructors. By the end of the course you will have a solid grounding in map reading skills and some experience of basic compass techniques.

By making no assumptions about previous experience this course is equally suitable for complete novices and seasoned walkers who are looking for an introduction to formal navigation techniques. The Beginner Navigation Course covers the syllabus and is assessed to the Bronze NNAS (National Navigation Award Scheme) level.
