Trueways 2 Day Urban Survival and Preparedness Course

Open to All aged 16+
No Previous experience required

Course Overview

The Trueways Survival Urban Preparedness Course, in-keeping with our philosophy of real skills for real situations, seeks to deliver sensible and appropriate survival training for unexpected eventualities in the urban environment.  How do we cope with power cuts and other denied services such as water and gas; the option of heading for the hills, as lovely as it sounds, isn't actually practical as life and society goes on.  We would still be expected to turn up to work and carry out our normal daily life’s activities.  In extreme circumstances the military would be called to give Military Assistance to Civil Authorities (MACA).  For this reason we should clearly state this course is not the doomsday approach or the zombie apocalypse.  It is focused on sensible preparations, precautions and actions in the event of denial of services as well as safety in urban environments perhaps when travelling or holidaying abroad.  Natural disaster and environmental issues are also covered.

Sensible but simple precautions and preparations, coupled with some knowledge and skills based on the real life experience of the experts on the Trueways Team, could make all the difference for you and your family. Be prepared and be safe!

Presented by Trueways Staff who have worked in real life emergencies and disaster relief around the world, the course provides in-depth information and practical skills training which goes beyond the simple advice provided by media and official websites, allowing you to understand the official advice, but preparing you and equipping you to cope for yourselves, in both the short term (until the situation returns to normal or you escape from it) or even in the long term.

Course Syllabus

  • Utilisation of household items to continue to operate

It's only by coming on such a course does one realize how ill prepared one is for surviving in the outdoors

The instructor was great - sharing practical skills & knowledge in an inclusive manner; giving us all the chance to practice our newly acquired skills ; I excelled at knots & fire starting

I thoroughly enjoyed the course Andy and Amo were great and their experience showed. October 2020 was tough but a great time even when wet!!
I will take a lot away from this especially the psychological side. Mentally it is as tough as the physical but I can say I'll be back! I cannot recommend this course enough - if you want to be challenged and your willing to push yourself.
It teaches that giving up and giving in is not a option!

Our second year under Andy’s guidance and what a great adventure we had!
Absolutely fantastic time with my eight year old son and a small group of like minded dads and kids.
It was challenging for the kids and the assessments were hard but Andy helped them through and was keen engaging and above all patient!
Thanks to Trueways and particularly Andy for looking after us so well in these difficult times.

My survival enthusiastic 9 year old throughly enjoyed 2 days on Cannock Chase. All of the children responded well to excellent tuition from Andy who struck up a quick rapore. Excellent venue which is of interest from a historical perspective and made the night time treasure hunt a brilliant experience. Adults will learn things too and will stand your children in good stead if they go on to do DofE. Thanks for a great weekend.
