About the courses
2 Day Basic Woodland Survival
The Trueways 2 Day Survival training course will provide you with an introduction to and good grounding in all the principles and skills necessary to survive in the wilderness. Including the principles that can be applied anywhere in the world. Trueways vast expertise in teaching Survival Courses across the UK will develop skills you didn't even know you had, from basic fire lighting (which is not as easy as it sounds) to getting rescued, this Trueways Survival Course is designed for beginners who wish to learn from scratch, and those with some experience of the outdoors wishing to check their knowledge. You will spend the evening sleeping in your own shelter under the stars. This course is designed for you to get practical hands on experience in a fun and safe enviroment. You will not be asked to do anything you are not comfortable with.
5 Day Basic to Advanced Woodland Survival
This, our flagship course takes clients from `Zero to Hero` in 5 days and incorporates a scenario based assesment during the last 24-30 hours. Throughout the course there is formative assessment of the assimilation of skills and knowledge, with the final suimmative assesment seeks to build upon the skills taught. This is an opportunity to put into practice and demonstrate the skills that are acquired and results in a formal assessment being carried out by the instructor.
This course is divided into two distinct parts
A teaching phase where we cover all the syllabus in detail and have the opportunity to practice those skills taught. We check the rate of assimilation and use all available time to ensure that the important parts are fully digested, at the end of the teaching phase we embark on a scenario based fully immersive assessment phase where we formally assess the abilities of the delegates within a sensible and realistic survival situation. This phase lasts approx 24-30 hours and covers all aspects attendee's will learn on this course. This is your oppertunity to demonstrate what you have learned and the skills you have acquired.
On completion of the assesment an instructor will formally assess your work and after deliberation and colsultation with external validators you will receive a certificate and course report in the post. You will be graded as "satisfactory" - meaning you have been able to demonstrate the key skills and done what is necessary to stay alive and get rescued, or "not yet satisfactory" meaning you have a few area's of weakness that should be addressed before attempting the assessment phase again.
7 Day Applied Advanced Survival
Our 7 Day Applied Advanced Survival Course is based around a survival scenario, but it is as close to a real survival situation as we can safely simulate. From the word go, you will have to provide for yourselves in a remote and possibly unfriendly environment, including dealing with any casualties which might have occurred and providing yoursleves with ALL water and food from the land for the duration. Led only by Trueways most senior and experienced staff, the Trueways 7 Day Applied Advanced Survival Course is unique. No other course available to the general public can offer the same challenge and reward.
Trueways staff will provide guidance and assistance, including teaching advanced techniques not normally taught on other courses, but you will find yourselves having to fend for yourselves from the start, albeit with guidance and suggestions. You will have to survive by applying the skills and techniques learned on previous courses, adding advanced skills learned during this course, whilst living entirely off the land (and rivers) for the duration, complete with having to navigate to safety to complete the experience.
The Trueways Applied Advanced Survival Course provides a full survival camp experience, with very limited gear and equipment.
