Map Reading and Navigation Courses
We offer two different types of map reading and navigation courses – our own bespoke navigation courses in Yorkshire, the Lake District and Snowdonia; and the National Navigation Award Scheme. The first gives you more flexibility in what the course covers, and where it is held. The second, the NNAS scheme, gives you the certainty of a set syllabus as well as the opportunity to gain a recognised certificate. There are pros and cons to each and we can help you decide what is best for you.
We run our summer navigation courses, for both beginners and more advanced navigators, in the Yorkshire Dales, Snowdonia and the Lake District. The winter mountain navigation courses are usually held in Scotland under full winter conditions.
The National Navigation Award Scheme introduces and develops navigation skills, helping people to enjoy the outdoors confidently, through a structured learning programme covering Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. (Ratio 1:8 max depending on exact course)
