Hills of Hame is a registered provider of the Bronze and Silver levels of the National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS). Both of these courses can be booked for private groups, as small as two people, but please book at least a week in advance. Enquire here.
Al delivers the courses on his own and has completed the NNAS Tutor Award to do so, alongside his HML and expedition qualifications.
The NNAS scheme is designed to develop personal competence and skill in navigation for a range of outdoor pursuits. Visit the NNAS site for more information.
The courses are both run at a maximum ratio of six people to one instructor. Hills of Hame does have the ability to deliver courses for up to 12 people with an additional instructor. As the minimum contact time for these awards is 12 hours, they run over at least 2 days.
