CAGs NAVIGATOR course

The students that attended the CAG Navigator course conducted over 40 hours of classroom and hands on training. They worked in instructor led navigation groups, team navigation events and individual events. In total, each student traveled approximately 20 miles. Early movements were without a backpack, latter movements were with "bug out bags". The students had to push themselves to achieve their goals. They had to learn teamwork and how to travel based on overall capabilities of the team. The students that attended the CAG Navigator course conducted over 40 hours of classroom and hands on training.

  • Plot points on a map
  • Give a grid to their location
  • How to use major terrain features to pinpoint their location
  • How to set an azimuth on a map
  • Compensate for magnetic north and grid north
  • Use phone apps to navigate
  • Estimate distance
  • Keep a pace count and a plethora of other skills and topics.
All in all it was a great training exercise. I am pretty happy with the overall motivation and lack of whining. These guys and gals aren't keyboard warriors, they actually do stuff.
