HILL WALKING & NAVIGATION
Mountain Training Hill Skills
Hill Skills is your key to getting stared in countryside and moorland walking. If you aren't confident in or would like to learn more about planning walks, navigating understanding the equipment required, understanding weather on the hills, hazards and safety procedures then the Hills Skills is the perfect course to learn.
The Basic Navigation Course is the perfect course to take you from following friends, known routes or guidebooks to independently planning and following simple walks. This course teaches you basic map & compass skills and gives you a great day out on the moors.
An Intermediate Navigation course is perfect if you have some experience of navigating but want to learn advance compass skills to get off the beaten track. This course will give you a fantastic day out on the moors and give you the confidence to take your adventures into open moorland terrain.
National Navigation Award Scheme
NNAS offers a nationally recognised structured incentive scheme to achieve levels of navigation to have the confidence to independently discover the countryside. NNAS awards are achieved in three levels; Bronze, Silver and Gold. Right through from Basic to advance navigation. We also provide the NNAS Tutor Award.
Family Navigation courses are great for the whole family. The adults of the family will learn all the same information as a Basic Navigation course but over a shorter walk to accommodate for those little legs on the course. The skills taught to children are adapted to each child and their individual learning level.
