Spring season navigation training weekends start on 27-28 August. Book now!
Navigation is a practical skill. The best way to learn it is to put it into practise in a real landscape with a map flapping in the wind, and the compass around your neck pointing you in the right direction. That said, the practical aspects of navigation do draw upon a set of techniques that are possible to learn online, before heading out into the elements. So I have put together an online tutorial which explains the techniques of how to read a topographic map and how to use your compass to determine your direction of travel or to work out your location.
