Navigation is a fundamental skill which, once learnt, will greatly increase your enjoyment and safety in the British hills and further afield. Our navigation courses cover the full spectrum of skills from the basics of setting the map and taking a bearing to fine tuning the abilities of mountain marathon competitors. If you want to know what to do when you’re lost or lack the confidence to explore the hills when the cloud is low then our courses will point you in the right direction!
Our courses also offer the opportunity to gain a National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) Bronze or Silver Award. This is a non-competitive, personal performance scheme designed to offer a structure to your development in a fun and enjoyable way.
If you are a complete beginner or want to go back to basics, choose our Introduction to Navigation Course. If you would like to expand on the basic skills, then this Improve your Navigation Course will be for you.
If you wish to receive the Silver NNAS Certificate after your Improvers course, (assuming you have competently learnt all that you have been shown) then please specify this at the time of booking so we can select one of our Instructors who is registered with the NNAS.
Please do NOT book your own accommodation and make travel arrangements until you have verified that the course is guaranteed to run.
