This training is open to all but ideally you will have previously attended the Level 1 course (basic map reading skills) or you will have a reasonable knowledge of basic navigation. Please note that this is a skills session only and not a certified qualification.

Logistics

Please could you join the meeting around 9:15 am or at least a few minutes early to sort out any technical issues, allowing the meeting to start promptly at 9:30 am. The meeting will close at 12:30 pm.

You may find it more comfortable on a pc/laptop rather than a phone and please download the Teams App rather than over your Browser to allow you to see everyone rather than just who is speaking.

The course will involve a Powerpoint presentation, some videos and some practical exercises. Please have a pen and paper to hand to take any notes, however, you will be provided with the Powerpoint slides after the training.

Please have a compass handy (recommend the Silva Expedition 4) and a map of the central Brecon Beacons area (OS Explorer OL12) or a map of the central Snowdonia area (OS Explorer OL 17).

Any questions or issues, please contact the team on cerddwyr@ramblers.org.uk

Can I update my registration information?

Yes of course, if need be contact cerddwyr@ramblers.org.uk for support.

Efallai y bydd yn fwy cyfforddus i chi ar gyfrifiadur personol / gliniadur yn hytrach na ffôn a dadlwythwch yr App Timau yn hytrach na thros eich Porwr er mwyn caniatáu ichi weld pawb yn hytrach na phwy sy'n siarad yn unig.

Bydd y cwrs yn cynnwys cyflwyniad Powerpoint, rhai fideos a rhai ymarferion ymarferol. Os oes gennych ysgrifbin a phapur wrth law i gymryd unrhyw nodiadau, fodd bynnag, byddwch yn cael y sleidiau Powerpoint ar ôl yr hyfforddiant.

Os gwelwch yn dda fod â chwmpawd wrth law (argymhellwch Alldaith Silva 4) a map o ardal ganolog Bannau Brycheiniog (OS Explorer OL12) neu fap o ardal ganolog Eryri (OS Explorer OL 17).
