You’ve put in the hard miles and honed your navigation techniques to a good standard – it’s time to go large. Our Advanced (Gold) Navigation course is, if you’ll pardon the pun, the gold standard in navigation training! Infact, our Advanced Navigation course runs at about the same technical level as that required for personal navigation for the Mountain Leader or Walking Group Leader Award.
To get the most from this course you need the practical skills to find your way efficiently both on and off the beaten track. This further training is all about fine tuning what you already know, adding in some new tricks of the trade and taking your skills into the big mountains of North Wales. It is also ideal as practice or to refresh skills for anyone on one of the hillwalking national governing body award schemes.
Many attendees of this course will previously have attended our Introductory (Bronze) and/or Intermediate (Silver) course, but this isn’t a pre-requisite. Maybe your training has come from another source and that’s fine. However, it is essential that your skills are at a suitable level and so we would ask you to contact us before booking to discuss the best option if you are in any doubt at all.
Our Advanced Navigation course is run in the Snowdonia National Park and incorporates a night navigation element (included in the price) for anyone wishing to attend. It is also run in small ratio groups (1:4) so you’ll get the maximum input and, therefore, maximum skill development. You’ll love it!
Oh, and there is also an attendance certificate issued to all participants – evidence of your Ninja skills and perfect to record in your log book if you are heading onto, or are already midway through, one of the national governing body hillwalking awards.
