Basic Survival Course (1-Day Course)
Our one day basic survival course is both rewarding and challenging with SCT’s indoor and outdoor training. This comprehensive course will introduce you to the world of wilderness and bush survival skills in an innovative and insightful way, providing you with the core essentials to surviving your journey into the outdoors.
The principles and key priority steps taught on this course are relevant in any terrain or environment, and will give you a solid foundation to surviving in the field.
This course is ideal for anybody who’s new to the bush, as well as experienced outdoorsmen and women who would like to refresh and further their skills. No experience is necessary, as we will provide full training on the day. View all of our survival and bushcraft courses here.
This course is a pre-requisite for our Intermediate Survival Course, Advanced Survival Course, and Specialist Survival Course.
The fun and challenging course will test your ability to think laterally, as well as use and repurpose what you have on you and what you have around you in nature. It will teach you a diverse range of core and necessary survival skills gleaned from a mixture of real world wilderness survival and bushcraft concepts.
With this basic survival course in Australia, our instructional teaching is very structured. Techniques are explained and then demonstrated, before you get to practise what you have been shown.
There will be individual work as well as some group work such as natural and emergency shelter construction and other activities.
Some activities will be timed (depending on the course) where you will have a set period of time to perform certain tasks. This adds an element of realism to those particular tasks to help simulate a real-world scenario.
This method of learning provides the opportunity for genuine skill and knowledge acquisition, as well as personal development.
