Event description

Description

This 2-day practical Peak District Navigation Course will equip you with transferable skills to get you out and about in the popular walking areas of the UK. Aimed at beginners looking to undertake self-guided walks in the hills, our beginner navigation course offers a thorough introduction to land navigation as well as essential skills for safety, planning and kit selection. You’ll also cover the effects of weather, how to deal with emergencies and gain a valuable understanding of our upland environment.


Run from our well-appointed training centre in the Peak District, you’re perfectly situated both for the high moorland and ridges of the Dark Peak and the beautiful valleys of the White Peak. After a short theory session covering Equipment, Maps, Grid References, Scales and Rights of Way we head outside to work on pacing and timing. Once on the hill we introduce the compass to set the map and check direction.


The second hill day it's over to you, beginning with a planning session looking at weather forecasts, guidebooks and online resources, you'll then strike out on a route of your own devising to practice and consolidate. This day also includes a short appraisal of your new skills.


To conclude, your experienced Pure Outdoor instructor will advise you on next steps and suggest ideal venues for progression. Recognised by DofE, Scouting and The Ramblers, the NNAS Bronze award is accredited by the Scottish Credit & Qualifications Framework (SCQF) at Level 4, and 2 SCQF credit points are awarded on completion.
