Safety on the Hills

We run this course in partnership with the Brecon Beacons National Park.  The two day course is designed for those who have an interest in learning to navigate safely in the mountain environment, and who have little or no previous experience. This Bronze Award course is accredited by the National Navigation Award Scheme and is nationally recognized.

Over the two days we’ll cover equipment choice, an introduction to mountain weather, maps and map interpretation, contour recognition and simple navigation strategies. In addition to the requirements of the Bronze National Navigation Award syllabus we also include an introduction to using a navigational compass.

The two days are based at the National Park’s visitor centre and provide  plenty of practice to give you the confidence to head off the beaten path.

2013 Course Dates:  March 16th&17th  May 4th&5th  September 14th&15th and October 19th&20th
