NATIONAL NAVIGATION AWARD COURSES (NNAS) IN SOUTH WALES

Bigfoot Services Limited have been delivering NNAS courses in South Wales since 2003 thus making the company an experienced provider for small groups or, if required, for individuals.

We deliver the following courses:

  • The Bronze National Navigation Award is a practical hands-on award. It is aimed at people with no navigation experience whether you are new to the outdoors or have been relying on others, guidebooks or easy well-defined routes.
  • The Silver National Navigation Award develops the navigation skills acquired at the Bronze level. It adds skills required to navigate to features and places some distance from paths and tracks. It teaches accurate compass work. It will also teach you to select the suitable navigational techniques to cross open country.
  • The Gold National Navigation Award builds on the skills acquired at the Bronze and Silver levels and adds techniques and skills for dealing with complex contour features both large and small. The Gold National Navigation Award is delivered in two parts with separate Training and Assessment courses giving you ample time to practice.
  • The NNAS has launched 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!
