You will gain a broader insight into more advanced navigation skills, developing from basic navigation skills, such as those in our Beginner Navigation course or Discover Navigation.
We will get to enjoy two days of walking in the stunning Snowdonian Mountains.
You will receive your NNAS Silver Certificate upon successful completion of this course. NNAS is recognised by DofE, Scouting and The Ramblers.
We will meet at the Siabod Cafe at 8.30 for a 9am start on day 1 of the course.
The majority of the morning will be spent looking at navigational theory inside. This will give us the opportunity to thoroughly cover various skills, whatever the weather. Around lunchtime, we will then head outside to put our new skills to the test. We will aim to be back at the cafe for about 4pm, where we will briefly consolidate what we have done before the end of the day.
In a similar fashion to day 1, we will spend a little of the morning re-touching on the theory we looked at during the previous day, however, we will aim to get outside as soon as possible, and if conditions allow it, we will head to the summit of a nearby peak.
At the end of the course
We will aim to return to the cafe for about 4pm on day 2, parting ways after a brief course overview.
