National Navigation Awards

These are nationally recognized personal performance awards and run against a set syllabus. We can offer you both the Bronze and Silver Awards and these are run over two days. Both awards look at the skills to navigate in open country including safety, environment and access.

The Bronze award enables you to be able to plan and follow routes in the countryside using paths and tracks.

The Silver award enables you to be able to plan and follow routes in the countryside away from paths and tracks.

Both the Bronze and Silver awards are a combined training and assessment course with a certificate and badge on successful completion.
