LOCATION: West Yorkshire & Yorkshire Dales

DURATION: 2 days (9am to 4:30pm approximately).

This 2 day course is designed for those with little, or no, previous navigational experience. It is an excellent, safe, way for new walkers or beginner navigators to gain the fundamental knowledge, practical skills and confidence from which they could go on to plan and follow their own routes using 'Rights Of Way' throughout the countryside.                                                                                        

The Bronze Award Scheme includes both indoor and outdoor sessions to introduce, demonstrate, discuss and practice the skills & techniques covered by the award. Subjects covered in the award syllabus include -

  • The use of different publishers maps.
  • Understanding map scales.
  • Reading & using Grid References.
  • How to orientate the map using both land features and the compass.
  • Using linear 'handrail' features during a journey.
  • Confirm location using identifiable features.
  • Measure distance on the map and use pacing & timing to estimate distance on the ground.
  • Use a navigational strategy to plan and follow a simple route.
  • Apply simple relocation techniques and recognise a navigational errors within a short period.
  • Be aware of access legislation and issues both locally and nationally.
  • Display a background knowledge of appropriate walking clothing & equipment, safety equipment and emergency procedures.

An 'assessment' element will take place during a short, relaxed journey on day 2. This will involve course attendees using their new knowledge and skills whilst taking turns to navigate a route appropriate to the award, and so gain the National Navigation Award Scheme Bronze certification. 

SUITABILITY: This course is suitable for those interested in gaining the navigational knowledge that may allow them to undertake their own 'on path' routes in the outdoor environments, without need of following a guide book and with confidence in their ability. No previous navigational knowledge is required but may be of benefit.

REQUIREMENTS: This course involves 2 days of indoor & outdoor navigation skills introduction, demonstration and client implementation. Those attending should have an adequate level of fitness and mobility required to comfortably participate fully during the outdoor elements of the course. These elements will involve walking over rough, wet, muddy, rocky or other surfaces using paths, tracks or bridleways following 'Rights Of Way' in an open countryside and/or hilly terrain, to gain most from the course. 

Those attending should be in possession of all items listed on kit list (which will be sent out with information pack on booking). 

INCLUDED: Course leadership, planning, organisation and instruction by fully qualified and experienced National Navigation Award Scheme Tutor, mountain leader/course instructor. Use of course maps & compass. NNAS Bronze Award certificate (dependant on successful assessment).

NOT INCLUDED: Travel, accommodation, any other expenses such as parking fees, etc. 

PLEASE NOTE: We recommend taking out travel, personal accident and cancellation insurance.
