Land Navigation Course
LENGTH OF COURSE: 2 days (20 hours)
The Land Navigation Course covers the techniques necessary to read a topographical map, a compass and protractor, and how to use a wristwatch or a stick to tell direction. Additionally, students will be taught how to pace count to determine distance covered. Requirements for this course will be both a day and a night navigation segment. The class will camp overnight.
For the law enforcement officer trying to coordinate an action in a forested area, or a hunter trying to take his game back to his vehicle, this course is unparalleled. Sometimes knowing how to get there is what it’s all about.
