AboutThe NNAS Silver award training and assessment course is designed to give people the skills to navigate in the countryside using the skills acquired at the Bronze level along with the additional skills required to navigate to features and places some distance from paths and tracks. Accurate compass work is required and an ability to use appropriate navigation techniques to go cross-country, e.g. choosing an appropriate attack point. This course has a minimum of 12 hours of training, including assessment over a distance of 5 - 8 kilometres in terrain which allows for the demonstration of appropriate skills.
You should already have some experience of navigating in the lowlands. You will get the most out of the course if you have already attended our NNAS Bronze Award course, although this is not mandatory.
The assessment route would normally include a number of distinct contour features which require the navigator to use a wide range of navigational strategies, it will also use a variety of countryside to require choice of route, having regard to the effect of terrain, etc. The practical assessment will be undertaken over a distance of 5-8km. Practical assessment will be supplemented by questions to the candidate. Candidates will demonstrate their ability to plan a route, and their understanding of the interaction between the land, countryside users and conservation. This will be carried out both orally or and utilising a short multiple choice test.
