Navigation Courses

I offer bespoke navigation training days for individuals and groups. Whether your interest in navigation is as  a walker, runner, or mountain biker I can teach you the navigation skills to help you enjoy your time on the moor, travel efficiently and effectively, and use the map features to their best advantage.


My next public courses are:

Navigation For Beginners
9th October – 10.00 to 14.00
Cost: £40.00

Navigation For Runners
10th October – 10.00 to 14.00
Cost: £40.00


My regular public navigation courses are open to up to 6 people at a time.  I keep these course numbers small so that everyone can maximise their learning and practice.

The aims of navigation courses are simple – to give lovers of the outdoors, whatever their sport, age, or fitness, the freedom to explore the paths, trails, hills and mountains of Britain and abroad. These courses are posted on this page or I can mail you directly if you email me your details.


I can also arrange a bespoke training day for you, your company, a group of friends and can tailor the teaching to your needs.


For 12 years I was a search team member in Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team using navigation skills in all weathers and have also been a Ten Tors Trainer for as many years. I teach people to use minimal navigation techniques in good visibility in order to move swiftly or to be able to enjoy the company of those you are with, but have a range of skills available to use in poor conditions.


National Navigation Award Scheme certificated courses are also available.
