Land navigation course, HTTH, RBH and water bodies are a separate part of the training area in which they are located and are scheduled separately. Example: a unit requesting the beginner course in 102S is restricted to the land navigation course, and does not have the right to maneuver elsewhere in 102S. If a unit requests and is assigned 102S, but the unit has not requested the land navigation course located in that training area, the unit does not have the right to operate in the land navigation course. If a unit wants to operate in 102S and run the land navigation course in 102S then they must request both.
