A little while back CHMAS was asked to provide some 1 to 1 navigation training for a student preparing for their DofE expedition. After chatting with the client about their key objectives, CHMAS developed a bespoke programme that included the following:
a) Personal equipment;
b) Map familiarisation and route planning;
c) Fundamental navigational skills for the hill (setting the map, tick features, timing etc.);
d) What to do in an emergency; and
e) Navigational strategies to keep on track.
It was a lovely day and the client left smiling and brimming with confidence with their new skills so a job well done in my opinion.
