The 1 day Hill Skills Training Course is primarily for those wanting to leave paths, understand the importance of contours, walk in cloudy conditions and use a compass to navigate confidently on open land.

The Hill Skills Course is suitable for those who want venture away from the paths and tracks and explore more of the open countryside. The use of land forms (particularly contours) and the ability to use a compass correctly and accurately form the basis of the day.
It is also suitable for those wanting the skills and confidence to climb the hills of the Dales and Peaks often in inclement weather as well as planning a route to get the most out of your chose walk.
It is not suitable for Beginners and anyone attending should have a good understanding of maps plus a reasonable level of fitness as much of the time we will not be on paths.

The Hill Skills course was very useful. I have struggled to use compasses properly for years and Jonathan was patient and by the end I was much more confident I can find my way in the cloud. A very useful day in the lovely Yorkshire Dales

Just a note to say how much I enjoyed the Intermediate Navigation Course yesterday.
Your method of going through the fundamentals first worked great for me.
A Very rewarding and useful day delivered in a friendly patient and professional manner. I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you.
Best regards David
