In this day and age it is easy to get distracted by fancy gear such as GPS, satellite tracking devices and smartphones; however, how many people do you know that can comfortably and confidently navigate in urban or wilderness settings using a compass and/or a paper map.

This 3 hour Introduction class on Land Navigation techniques introduced the students to lensatic & orienteering compasses and how to hold them, establishing pace count and how it changes in various conditions, using a legend on the map, understanding the differences in map scale, how to establish a bearing/azimuth using a magnetic compass and follow it.

The students all learned a great lesson in preparedness and we set up a full day Land Navigation course which will allow them to put their skills to the test.
