About

Course Overview

The NNAS Bronze award training and assessment course is designed to give people the skills to navigate in the countryside using paths, tracks and other linear features, basic map interpretation and compass work. The course is perfect for D of E supervisors, D of E Bronze award candidates, photographers, cyclists or anyone who works in lowland countryside. The course is run over two days, day one is mainly classroom based were the theory of navigation is learnt, this is followed by on day two the practical application of this theory spending the whole day outside doing practical training. The course assessment takes place on the afternoon of day two when you will demonstrate the practical navigation skills you have learnt. The practical assessment will be reinforced by questions on the basic skills of navigation, route planning, selection and safety. This will be carried out both orally and/or utilising a short multiple choice test.
