Advanced Navigation Training - Navigation in more challenging terrain Glenn Gavin

The National Navigation Awards Scheme (NNAS) provides an in depth, structured approach to the development of navigation skills. At this level participants will be required to effectively use a map, supported by a compass, in a range of settings including open more remote settings and at night. They will undertake navigational challenges that are a significant step up from the 'starter' NNAS Bronze award courses. Completion of the weekend will given them the knowledge and understanding to be able find their way confidently in most moorland, hill and lowland terrain.

This weekend will take place in and around the New Forest, Hampshire. There is a fantastic campsite at Acres Down near Lyndhurst but for those of you needing something a little more comfortable, the towns of Lyndhurst or Brockenhurst should be able to provide. The objective for the weekend is to develop our navigation skills to plan routes for longer distance walks, to develop an understanding of finer navigation skills and to experience working in more challenging circumstances.

You will be sent pre course information and a kit list.

Please do not feel that you need to buy any extra kit prior to the course, Whatever you normally go walking in will, i'm sure, be fine.
Maps and compasses will be provided.
