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. It is also the starting point for many Duke of Edinburgh students, scouts and guides and cadets who are looking to develop their outdoor skills.

The award covers the following:-
The courses are run in the North York Moors National Park.
Bronze NNAS is run over two days with a minimum of 12 hours tutor time (including assessment). Most often this is over two consecutive days but can be done over a longer period. There ideally should be a minimum of 2 students to run the course and maximum of 8, though we can run this on a 1:1 basis. Please get in touch of you would like to arrange a course for yourself and/or friends/colleagues (a private course). Otherwise please see below for the next dates. The first day starts with introductions and formalities over a hot drink in a nearby cafe before heading outside. There will be plenty of time for instruction and practice during the day. At the end of the day you will plan a walk. On the second day there will be further instruction followed by an assessment for the Bronze Award.
