This course provides a more fun look at SERE training for civilians, designed for everyday people to get a taste of what this kind of training is all about.
SCT’s Survival Evasion Resistance Escape (SERE) training is a stand-alone, one-day course – separate to our four progressive stages of survival and bushcraft courses. BOOKINGS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST…PLS CALL OR EMAIL US FOR YOUR PREFERRED COURSE DATE FOR THIS COURSE.
Our SERE course has been condensed from the military version in order to turn it into a more relevant and easily digestible format…but remains exciting at the same time!
The concept of military-style combined Escape and Evasion ‘E&E’ training courses that include escape and resistance elements have become popular over the years.
As you may well know – SERE training was originally conceived for downed USAF combat pilots, who found themselves alone and behind enemy lines needing to avoid detection and to make it back alive.
We realise that most civilians will never actually be in a situation where they are alone behind enemy lines or are kidnapped etc (hopefully) – hence why this is designed to be more as an insight, combined with learning serious and practical survival techniques.
That said, however, you never know when this kind of training may come in handy, as many of us travel to various parts of the globe that can easily become dangerous and unstable in a heartbeat, as we’ve seen time and time again in developing countries.
Our focus at SCT is to have genuine tried and tested survival techniques at the core of all of our wilderness training courses, whether through our series of staged courses or our stand-alone ones.
The SERE Survival Training Course For Civilians features many military survival techniques, as well as modern survival and traditional bushcraft practices that you can use in the field.
We also believe that the best method is to not get caught in the first place (concealment and stealth are a main focus of this course).
This specialised survival course is designed to teach you methods for dealing with the mental challenges that come with all survival situations in the bush, as well as the hypothetical scenario of evading a pursuer (in a SERE scenario).
Additionally, it will also teach you to be emotionally strong in the face of natural fear even when you’re lost in the wilderness – while also offering guidance on how to escape potentially hazardous situations.
Here are just a few of the units that will be covered on the SERE training for civilians’ survival course:
>>Learn how to construct natural survival shelters that will protect you from the elements.
>>Learn the art of concealment, camouflage, and how to blend in to your environment.
>>Learn how to navigate using the sun, and the stars.
>>Learn how to defeat the most commonly used hand restraints (plasticuffs, zip ties, cable ties etc).
>> Learn survival psychology; necessary mental training for surviving in the wilderness and being able to adapt and handle being alone in the bush (or an escape situation).
>>Learn how to make an all-important fire that is undetectable.
