National Navigation Award Scheme courses - TahDah account
NNAS courses are now facilitated through an online system CMS managed by ‘TahDah’ when you book a course New Forest Navigation will add you name, email address and other details to that online system. (
NNAS courses - additional details
In order to enter your details onto the NNAS website I need you to supply your date of birth and/or email. I have pasted some information below about why this is required. In a nutshell the NNAs use a secure online management system and require the information so each person is only entered once onto the system. The date of birth is used so there are no duplicates - if you go on to do other courses with NNAS or other organisations using Tahdah you will then only have one record with them.
Those undertaking an NNAS course will now have to provide their Date of Birth and/or email. This information is required so that participants can be entered onto the NNAS online management system.
The NNAS require your Date of Birth and/email address to complete their online management system. This information is required to enter your details onto the NNAS system that is provided by TahDah Verified Ltd. (a software company).
