About the course
This one day course builds on our safe practices in the countryside course (this is not a prerequisite), and aims to develop your navigational skills, whilst discussing some of the more technical aspects of walking.
We aim to cover a range of technical navigational skills, such as using grid references, map feature interpretation, contour interpretation and compass use.
