I signed up for the Introduction to Navigation course, not really having any understanding of how to read a map or use a compass. The course was fantastic, not only did Robert cover navigation, the tools to use and how best to use them, he also covered vital safety points to live by while out in the hills. I can highly recommend the day for all levels, Robert puts you at ease and makes the day good fun.
