Night Navigation Course
The Course

This course is ideal for anyone who has registered for or taken part in a training course as part of their Lowland Leader, Hill and Moorland Leader, Countryside Leader or Mountain Leader Awards. It is equally open for anyone who would like to experience or refresh their navigational skills in darkness and/or poor visibility. This is a relatively short, approximately 3-hour course specifically designed to address the issues surrounding successfully navigating along paths and tracks and across open hill and moorland at night. The aim of the course is to give you more confidence of navigation under more difficult conditions and provide an opportunity to ask questions and/or clarify any issues that you are unsure about.

Equipment to bring

You should bring an appropriate rucksack with some food and drink, maps of the area if you have them (details will be provided nearer the time although laminated maps of the area will be provided on the day), a compass and head torch (plus spare batteries) (see Equipment under Essential Info) .

What you will cover

Typically the night session is driven by the common key navigational skills required by Leader qualifications but could include * route planning * timing and pacing * compass techniques * aiming off and attack points * boxing and search patterns * looking after your group * awareness of other navigational aids *
