Intermediate Land Navigation


art-land-navCourse Description

We will pick up where we left off in the Basic Land Navigation class. After a classroom review, the majority of the two-day course will be spent outside with practical field exercises to improve your ability to use topographic maps in conjunction with a compass. The combination of these resources and the skills taught in this course will give you a confident boost in your navigational skills regardless of the reasons you might find yourself off-trail.  

  • Use compass to determine and plot bearing or azimuth on a map
  • Section / resection & triangulation
  • Plotting MGRS / USNG / UTM coordinates
  • Route planning and execution by ded reckoning and terrain association
  • Day & Night Land Navigation exercises
