This one-day course exposes students to the skills needed to successfully navigate through unknown terrain and become a competent map-and-compass land navigator. Students learn how to read map contour lines, measure distances, find way-points, and interpret terrain features. You will also learn techniques such as "catching", "handrailing", and "dead reckoning" to traverse terrain. Then you will set off with your map and compass to put these new skills to the test on our Land Navigation Course. You are tasked to find pre-determined check points, then make your way back to the starting point. This course is ideal for hikers, hunters, military personnel, search and rescue personnel, or anyone who needs to learn the essential skills of Land Navigation.
