Event description
Want to gain confidence navigating away from trails and footpaths? Join us for this masterclass to learn compass skills and other techniques

About this Event

The course covers navigation in the countryside developing skills required to navigate to features and places some distance from paths and tracks. Accurate compass work is required and an ability to use appropriate navigational techniques to go across country in some cases, eg. choosing an appropriate attack point.

We will meet at 9am and aim to finish for 5pm each day.

This course is day 1 the National Navigation Award Scheme Silver course for those who do not want to do the assessment and get and award.

As this is a structured syllabus we will cover the whole content to ensure consistency but we can focus on specific areas of need for the group/ individuals as required.

The course will be delivered with a mix of exercises to build skills and outside navigation practice, so be prepared to be out on the hill for some of the day.

We will aim to be finished by 5pm, if we are on the hill at the end of the day we will aim to head back around 4.30pm to ensure enough time for debrief/ reflections before the end of the day.

The course will be delivered by a qualified Mountain Leader and NNAS registered tutor, Emily Thompson. Emily is also a qualified first aider.

There is also a two day option if you wish to gain assessment and get the National Navigation Award Scheme Silver Certificate. See this link for details:
