NEW Practical Survival Course


Dates in the Highlands, Scotland
Dates in Sussex, England


This course is a fast-track to essential survival knowledge for those travelling, working and playing in wilderness environments. It covers survival principles, practical techniques and equipment that can save your life in an emergency situation. It is not aimed at developing bushcraft skills, which are definitely useful, but which take more time to master (we have plenty of other courses which cover that). The course offers a firm foundation in practical survival that will give you added assurance if things suddenly go wrong.

Learning outcomes

  • Survival procedures: what to do when you initially find yourself in a survival situation
