- The NNAS offers the NNAS Tutor Award, a course for those who teach navigation. It is a recognition that just because one can personally navigate it doesn’t follow that one can teach it!
- All current award providers and their staff will have to attend this CPD-accredited course in order to continue to offer bronze-level NNAS courses.
- Successful completion of the NNAS Tutor Award will also enable (after approval by NNAS) those without a higher hill or mountain walking qualification, but with experience and interest in the outdoors, to help teach on a Bronze award under the guidance of a registered NNAS Bronze provider. They will be called “Bronze Tutors”. In this case, once the NNAS Tutor Award is completed, an application by email to the NNAS must be made and approved before that person assists on Bronze courses.
- The course is a mixture of indoor and outdoor practical sessions and offers the opportunity for candidates to discuss their own methodology as well as learning new techniques from others.
