This course has been designed to teach you everything you need to know about the most important priorities for survival in a wilderness or survival situation, which are fire, shelter and water. 


The majority of the course will be given over to fire lighting techniques where we will examine the science of fire, ignition sources (both primitive and modern including fire by friction), natural and man-made tinders, kindling sourcing and preparation, fire lays, fire establishment, maintenance, moderation and application.


After lunch we will go on to examine the location and construction of both man-made and natural shelters, this will be followed by studying water sourcing, filtration and purification. We will conclude the course with the water sourcing challenge.

Matt was an excellent instructor who led the group well throughout the day with consideration to the pace of the learning and what we actually did. He is a very personable sort of guy who quickly established a warm rapport with us and without doubt was extremely knowledgable about his subject which he taught with confidence and passion. He even had to contend with a biblical style downpour right in the middle of the day! He took it all in his stride and continued to motivate and interest us with a wide scope of topics that I had given him for the group to get stuck into. I will definitely recommend him to others and will try and organise another day with him later in the year.
