Outdoor Survival Training
Specialist Survival Course (1-Day Course)
Sometimes we need to be trained to a much higher level than a basic course – especially if being lost or stranded in the bush lasts for more than one night…which is why a specialist level of outdoor survival training will make all the difference.
The majority of people don’t often think about the dangers they could face if things turn serious when out hiking, skiing, or working remotely etc.
This turn of events can leave them badly equipped to cope with this kind of challenging scenario and lead to them becoming mentally and physically unprepared for such an emergency situation.
Quite simply, the better prepared you are and the more specialised knowledge and training you acquire, the less shocked and vulnerable you will feel – which ultimately helps you to react more calmly and make better-informed decisions.
Regardless of whether you’re a hiker, climber, kayaker, 4WD enthusiast, someone who enjoys the great outdoors or anyone who has to work in remote areas – superior survival and bushcraft skills can definitely save your life!
SCT’s one day Specialist Survival Course is designed to take your critical ability, knowledge, and practical application to the highest level, using advanced survival techniques that are required in a wilderness environment.
The main difference between survival and bushcraft courses is that survival training focuses on an emergency situation, whereas bushcraft does not. The two skill sets are fundamentally similar, they just have a different core at their centre. Take a look at all of our survival courses here.
Bushcraft happens to be the overarching parent subject that survival training comes from, with survival training concentrating on more of the essential physical and mental skills required to cope with an emergency situation or natural disaster – with the ultimate goal of being rescued or returning to an area of safety by yourself (self-rescue).
The diverse range of advanced skills taught on our 1-day outdoor survival training course (Specialist Survival Course) will help you to become self-sufficient, allow you to deal with any number of survival situations, and keep you safe in the field.
Afterwards, you will have greatly increased your overall survival and fieldcraft, knowledge – including how to convert undrinkable seawater into fresh drinking water, using an improvised desalination device!
This is an absolute must-know technique in Australia, where we are fortunate to predominantly live near the coast, or on one of the thousands of islands that make up our amazingly diverse terrain.
Even if you’re lucky enough to never be in a real-life survival situation, the deep knowledge, resourcefulness, ability to think laterally, and other skill sets from SCT’s wilderness and outdoor survival training courses are fun and exciting in their own right.
Our Specialist Survival Course will enhance all of your outdoor adventures and create a more extensive respect for nature – as well as giving you that all important peace of mind.
This course teaches advanced skills and uses modern survival and wilderness techniques, lifting your knowledge base and sheer skill level above and beyond our Advanced Survival Course.
It’s an exhilarating day of hands-on survival and fieldcraft training, which will prepare you both mentally and practically for those times of crisis, beginning at 8:30am and finishing at 4:30pm.

“I learnt a great deal from the Specialist Survival Course. Having done all of SCT’s courses, the specialist course was a really good progression from the Advanced Survival Course. I’d definitely recommend doing it.”
