Navigation Course

An essential part of being confident in the mountains is a good sense of orientation. This course is designed to provide a solid base in navigation techniques and familiarization with the tools designed to assist in this art.

Topics covered will be:

  • Map reading
  • Trip planning
  • Time estimates
  • Programming of GPS units (Garmin)
  • Field training in compass/altimeter
  • Field training in GPS

This course does not necessarily take place in the mountains as the techniques can be learned and practiced in most rural environments. (Location and time will be dependent on participants; five minimum)

Course duration: 2 days
Price: $150.00 accommodation not included
