National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) Courses

The National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) was launched in 1994 at the Royal Institute of Navigation in London, and since then over 50,000 people of all ages have gained outdoor navigation awards.

  • The scheme continues to be a great success, and with over 500 registered providers of courses. Thousands of people of all ages have benefited from the skills learnt on an NNAS course.
  • The Scheme is supported by outdoor organisations for its sound training system for teaching the skills of land based navigation, and enabling participants to gain the confidence and skills to plan and safely execute their own journeys into the countryside.

Bigfoot Services Limited in partnership with Bryn Walking (based in Newtown) offer the following training courses listed below through the National Navigation Award Scheme. 

Bronze and Silver courses will be delivered by Helen Menhinick of Bryn Walking whilst Alan Ward will deliver the Gold and Tutor Award courses.
