About

Summary:

The final module of the National Navigation Award Scheme is an intense but rewarding experience that builds on and refines existing skills. The Advanced Navigation Course focuses on the use of smaller and more infrequent features and navigating in poor weather or the dark. On completion of this rigorous course you will be able to plan and follow routes in any open countryside, forest or hill environment and will have gained a lot of confidence in your ability to navigate in difficult conditions.

This course covers the syllabus of the Gold NNAS Training Course, participants that wish to receive certification at the Gold standard will have to attend a separate one day Gold NNAS Assessment Course. A significant amount of previous formal navigation experience is assumed, this may have been gained by completing a Silver NNAS Course or other equivalent training.

 During the course you will look at:

  • Refining and improving existing skills.
  • Aspect of slope, contouring, mapping, search techniques.
  • Navigating in poor visibility and at night.
  • Combining techniques to navigate difficult terrain.
  • Relocation strategies.
