At SCT – with our survival training Australia – it’s all about providing our students with the confidence to go out and explore wherever and whenever they choose to.
We provide them with the skills, the knowledge, and the self-belief that they need to prevent or respond to emergencies in remote natural environments – something that Australia has in spades!
We accomplish this by teaching our students the same modern approach to wilderness survival that was originally conceived by the military…but which has been adapted to suit everyday people who enjoy the outdoors for recreation.
Adaptation is absolutely critical when you face any kind of life-threatening situation, whether it’s out in the field or in an urban environment.
Any given survival situation will throw any number of obstacles at you, and the challenges and hardships you deal with will also change as you try to overcome them, so you need to remain flexible.
We achieve this by emphasising the importance of survival and bushcraft knowledge that you can carry with you, along with even just a few key pieces of equipment.
Through basic preparedness, carrying a few tools and some gear, staying positive, being flexible, and having a practical approach to improvisation and repurposing items – you can achieve things you never thought possible.
We teach these life skills at Survival Courses Tasmania, and one of the things I love is to repurpose things you find in the wild or kit you have that was designed for something completely different.
We also help our clients to make more informed decisions by teaching them the Top 5 Survival Priorities for any wilderness emergency: Shelter / Protection, Fire / Warmth, Rescue Signals, Water, and Food.
At SCT, we also teach the importance of Survival Psychology in our two basic survival courses, because once you’re armed with the right training, you’ll have the right mindset to respond to an emergency situation.
That way, your mind will see the situation as less of a crisis where you automatically panic, and you’ll be more in control of your decisions, so you can better protect yourself and others and get back to safety.
Survival Courses Tasmania has trained a diverse mix of students (we prefer to refer to our customers as students) from all over Australia, as well as international visitors.
Some are experienced hikers, hunters, mountain bike riders, kayakers, climbers etc who want to be better prepared for an emergency — especially should their day trip turn into an unexpected night out in the wild.
Others simply want to increase their fundamental or advanced outdoor skills, so that they can take their adventures to the next level.
Our students come from all walks of life and include younger teenage boys and girls, as well as older professionals, adventurers, and outdoor enthusiasts.
So, discover for yourself why SCT is the right choice of survival training school in Australia and how we can help you to grow in your personal skill sets and accomplish your goals.
Mother Nature can be unforgiving. Having the right skills and knowledge to work with your natural environment – rather than against it – is key to your survival.
Developed for those either with little-to-no wilderness experience or with years in the outdoors under their belts, our series of 1-day survival and bushcraft courses will teach individuals valuable concepts and skills that can be applied when faced with any outdoor emergency.
