Our Advanced (Gold) Navigation course is, if you’ll pardon the pun, the gold standard in navigation training! You’ve put in the hard miles and honed your navigation techniques to a good standard. It is time to go large. Infact, our Advanced (Gold) Navigation course will train you in the skills required for the Mountain Leader or Hill and Moorland Leader Award.
To get the most from this course you need the practical skills to find your way efficiently well off the beaten track. This course focuses on fine tuning what you already know and adding in plenty of new tricks of the trade. It is also about taking your skills into the big mountains. It is ideal for recreational navigators or for anyone on one of the hillwalking national governing body award schemes. All participants for this course must be over 16 and under 18’s must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Many attendees of this course will previously have attended our Introductory (Bronze) course and/or Intermediate (Silver) course. This isn’t a pre-requisite though. Maybe your training has come from another source and that’s fine. However, it is essential that your skills are at a suitable level. Please contact us before booking if you are in any doubt.
Our Mountain Training qualified team have been walking the trails of the Snowdonia National Park for decades. That’s important. We know all the sneaky venues to escape the honeypot sites and the best options to maximise your skill development.
Our Advanced (Gold) Navigation Course runs in the Snowdonia National Park and incorporates a night navigation element. This is included in the price but we also leave it as an optional choice. You may prefer a warm bed and a nightcap! It is also run in small ratio groups (1:4) so you’ll get the maximum input and, therefore, maximum skill development. You’ll love it!
Oh, and there is also an attendance certificate issued to all participants – evidence of your Ninja skills and perfect to record in your log book if you are heading onto, or are already midway through, one of the national governing body hillwalking awards.
