Wilderness Navigation Rebadge information

Information on how to renew your Wilderness Navigation Badge

Your Basic Navigation Badge will expire after 3 years. To renew  your  badge that you previously earned, you just need to instruct at a workshop and a field trip.  No cost.  

NEW FOR 2021 ONLY - You may pick either a workshop, or a Field Trip, or both to qualify for a re-badge. While teaching the online courses in encouraged, this alone will not qualify you for a re-badge.

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Sign up as an instructor for the 2021 Seattle Wilderness Navigation Course here: Seattle 2021 Wilderness Navigation Course.  NOTE: If your badge has expired, you may not be able to sign up for the course because the website thinks you don't have the required prerequisites.  If you cannot sign up, proceed to step 2 below and indicate the following:
    1. My badge expired/could not sign up
    2.  Date that you graduated from the course, or when the last rebadge event occurred.  This should be listed in your "My Courses and Programs" profile.
  2. Send an email to Seattle Navigation Chairs  so we can mark you as a rebadge candidate.
  3. Sign up as an instructor for a workshop that works with your schedule. Again, let us know if you need help signing up.
  4. Sign up as an instructor for a field trip that works with your schedule. Again, let us know if you need help signing up.
  5. Consider attending an instructor training session in Jan/Feb/Mar 2021. We have a new format, and this will really help get you up to speed. Search for Instructor Training Sessions. If that search doesn't work, Search for all the Seattle Wilderness Navigation Courses
  6. Review the instructor information as you see fit here: Seattle Navigation Leader/Instructor Page
  7. IMPORTANT: As a final step after you have successfully completed both the workshop and the field trip, send an email to Seattle Navigation Chairs  so we can mark you as completed. Failing to do this will likely delay receipt of your badge.
