Map & Compass training
Prior to the three hour training, you will access and complete as much as possible the online course at Maine e-Learning. You will be given a unique access code. Do not complete any work that is confusing, but be sure to read all of the lessons and worksheets. Bring your favorite baseplate compass to training. There will be some available for use if you forget and some available for purchase if you don't like yours.
During the three hour live training, we will work with topo maps understanding their symbols, legend, scales, and the stories they tell. You will navigate on the map by using your magnetic baseplate compass and learn safety bearings. You will learn the parts of a baseplate compass and how to hold it when going outside.
Depending on mastery of the inside work, we will go outside and use the compass to sight bearings, follow them, avoid hazards, and learn how to use a compass in dense woods when following a known bearing.
