The Association of Mountaineering Instructors and Mountain Training England Outdoor activities and courses

The maps produced by the Ordnance Survey provide a precise tool for ramblers, walkers, mountain bikers and mountaineers; with the introduction of metrication and new photogrametric survey techniques, the maps of today are better than ever. Navigation really is very straightforward when approached in a confident way. This practical map reading course concentrates on micro navigation techniques such as: map types, map scales, timing, pacing, distance estimation, contour interpretation, re-location, route planning & route choice. An ideal opportunity to gain confidence in the use of map and compass. Accident and emergency procedures and safety equipment for walkers are also covered in the course. Maps and compass provided.
