Positive feedback for NNAS
Four people completed the first Bronze NNAS of the year in March and despite the rain they have already booked a Silver Dorset course in July! In contrast the first silver was held in amazing sunshine.
I was delighted to receive this feedback from Alan about the course.
" I had thought I already knew how to read a map , but I now realise how much of the detail I was simply ignoring . Nigel showed us how to use a map properly, and how to combine the depth of detail on the map with a simple system to keep track of our position. As the course progressed we were introduced to additional concepts and information, in a steadily progressive way, until we were planning and leading route sections ourselves using map and compass . The iterative approach used on the course combined practice with learning in a way which kept things interesting whilst reinforcing the skills we had already gained.
This proved to be an excellent course, with excellent and patient instruction from Nigel, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody interested in the outdoors. "
National Navigation Award Scheme courses take place through the year in the New Forest, Isle of Wight and Dorset and can also be arranged for your group, club or frinds.
