NNAS Bronze Award training and assessment (2 days)
£400 – for a group of max. 6 participants

Learn the foundation for navigation in the countryside using paths, tracks and other well defined features. This includes learning to effectively use maps and understand the basic functions of the compass. The course uses a mix of teaching styles to suit different learners’ needs. Part of the course will be spent indoors, with most of the time spent outdoors putting newly learned skills and knowledge into practice.

The NNAS Bronze award is accredited by the Scottish Credit & Qualifications Framework (SCQF) at Level 4, and 2 SCQF credit points are awarded on completion.

NNAS Silver Award training and assessment (2 days)
£400 – for a group of max. 4 participants

This course is for those who already have a basic understanding of using map and compass, and are looking to build on this for navigating in the countryside some distance away from tracks and paths. You will learn advanced navigation strategies and you will increase your skills in landscape interpretation.

Transport from Inverness can be arranged.
