The Silva Navigation School is working with Mount Cook Adventure Centre near Wirksworth, Derbyshire, to offer these residential Bronze NNAS courses. The same great content as the non-residential courses but based at Mount Cook, with meals and accommodation included. Dates for 2020 are 15 – 17 May, 24 – 26 July and 25 – 27 September.
The Bronze NNAS map and compass courses are ideal for beginners or for those who have been walking for a while and keep getting lost! We follow the syllabus of the National Navigation Award Scheme’s (NNAS) Bronze Navigator Award, a structured way to learn navigation skills.
The course is a practical course, most of it spent outside learning the essential skills in small groups. It starts on Saturday morning and finishes late afternoon on Sunday.
For more details of the content and structure of the Bronze Course see this page.
