Covid 19 Update: All map reading and compass skills courses are now going ahead in line with government guidelines. We are advertising events from early July with a maximum of 5 participants with courses taking place solely outdoors. Social distancing and hygiene criteria will be in place and you will be informed about what this entails before the start of the course.
Beginners / Bronze Level Course (NNAS)
This is a two day course covering map reading and basic compass skills with plenty of time to practice in the outdoors. The course is suitable for complete beginners or those who have some experience with maps but would like a refresher.
Improvers / Silver Level Course (NNAS)
This is a 2 day course designed to improve your map reading and learn, or improve, your compass skills. You will learn how to use the map and compass to help you in good and bad visibility. You don't need to have used a compass before as the course will take you through everything step by step.

Advanced Navigation / Refresher
This is a one day course for those who have either done the Improvers / Silver Course or already have some experience using a map and compass. The day will take place on Kinder Scout where the terrain is rough and navigation is challenging.
