The National Navigation Award Scheme Silver Navigator Award is a course for those who have some walking and navigation experience, and who want to develop the skills further and consolidate them. It focuses on navigation in open moorland and countryside away from paths and other linear features. We recommend completing the NNAS Bronze Navigator Award before taking this course. The course runs over two days and includes both training and an assessment of personal skills.
