Silver Navigator Award Overview
The Silver National Navigation Award develops navigation skills needed for the mountain environment. You'll learn how to navigate to features and places away from paths and tracks. It teaches accurate compass work and poor weather navigation techniques. It will also teach you to select the suitable navigational techniques to cross open country for walking and hiking.
Our Silver National Navigation Award courses are taught in mountainous terrain and involve periods where you’ll be navigating away from established paths and tracks.
