NNAS Navigation Training

 

National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS)

Adventure Expeditions runs all levels of the NNAS (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Gold Assessment). The NNAS is a national scheme that focuses on developing personal skills and performance without being competitive. It is not a leadership award but does cover aspects of route planning, safety, emergency procedures and access legislation, rights and responsibilities. Participants receive national accreditation with a certificate from the NNAS on successful completion. 

 

The scheme is therefore ideal for teachers and leaders who either do not hold national governing body awards/are developing skills towards them (e.g. Walking Group Leader, Mountain Leader) and for participants on DofE expeditions in gaining confidence and proficiency in their navigation. The aim of all levels of the scheme is to leave you feeling more confident and competent in enjoying the countryside around you.

No prior experience of navigation is necessary: however, if you have some navigation experience then you can choose to start the scheme at whichever level suits you best. See our table below for more information and to help you decide your level.

"I taught navigation on a DofE weekend recently and it went really well, your course really helped."
