NNAS Silver Award Navigation Course
We run our National Navigation Award Scheme NNAS Silver Award navigation course on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. It is a practical, hands-on course with an element of assessment to gain a recognised qualification. The Silver award builds on the navigational skills you have learned at Bronze level so that you can navigate in more tricky terrain.
The Silver award gives you the skills needed to navigate to places that are away from clearly defined linear features, such as tracks. You will learn accurate compass work and how to select suitable techniques to navigate across open country. Therefore, Silver NNAS navigation courses take place in areas with access to open country and they involve periods where you’ll be navigating away from paths and tracks. Sometimes these areas may be rough underfoot – for example boggy or rocky terrain.
The ratio for these courses is 1:6 maximum.
If the NNAS Silver Award is not right for you, then we offer the following other navigation courses:
