Hello, I'm glad you found some useful courses. Here is a great list of free videos demonstrating the basic skills. http://www.croc.org/navigationvideos/ Also, I just want to add that going out with someone who can teach you is great too. Courses in a building can teach you a ton. But being in the field is best. If you don't know anyone try finding a local backpacking or hiking group on the Meetup app. Good luck!
