Map Reading for Beginners

If you think you can’t read a map, you’re probably wrong! We’ll take you through the fundamental skills of orientating the map, feature recognition and using timing to help you to stay on track. We aim to give you the tools to explore the great outdoors with increased confidence.

Navigation in a Day

This course is based around our 2 day Introduction to Navigation course and covers a number of the basic techniques taught on the longer course. If you don’t have 2 days to learn and consolidate, this could be the course for you. Although you won’t leave the course as an expert, you should gain the skills and confidence to explore with greater independence.

Experienced Tutors

Your training course will be delivered by an experienced Mountain Leader and tutor for the National Navigation Award Scheme. We believe in practical training for practical subjects, so you can be assured of an active and engaging day. If you’d like to learn more, contact us or book your place now.
