You are comfortable with the basics of map and compass work but want to improve to the next level, but can only spare one day

The Navigation Improver Day course is usually on a Saturday starting at 9:00 and finishing around 16:30. The course is practical, hands on and most lessons are conducted whilst on the hill with moderate walking in more difficult hill walking terrain than Foundation level courses.

The Nav Improver Day covers most of the core skills of the Intermediate Level Course but without the second day of practice and assessment, ideal for people who already know the basics and can only spare a day but want to improve their navigation skills.

If in doubt, feel free to talk to us before hand if you wish.
