A stand-alone 4hr night-time course, focusing on developing your skills to navigate confidently and effectively in darkness or poor visibility. A full immersion course that will reward your commitment to less sleep for a night by giving you the skills to tackle the night navigation element of your assessment.
This is a unique course that asks you to consider and refine your approach to navigation as a whole, alongside delving into the finer detail that’s often missed. When developing your night-navigation it’s worth considering every last increment of precision, since this can really matter at night. This course looks into all the areas where you can make small changes, alongside developing an overall approach to navigation that will help you see things more clearly, even in the confidence-sapping darkness! For some, the content of these courses can be quite instrumental in shaping the way they navigate, giving confidence and considerable improvements in skill during the day and night.
