You will spend 2 days in the outdoors learning both basic and more advanced navigation techniques such as grid references, relocation, compass bearings, aiming off, attack points, contour recognition and navigation on more technical, rougher and complex ground.
This is an ideal continuation for those who have undertaken a beginners course but also suitable for those who have not completed any prior training as we will tailor the exercises to each individuals ability.
One of the keys aspects in becoming a good navigator is to practise a wide range of navigation techniques and this really requires 2 full days of training, providing the time to practise the skills and learn from your course leader. The course cost does not include accommodation.
