Course Content

Surviving Adventure is high energy and very ‘hands on’ and, once the practicals and initial lectures are complete, the course progresses to a series of fully realistic exercises. These are designed to give first-hand experience of what an emergency situation feels like, and how to manage one from start to finish. Key to the whole course is the fact that each and every lecture and scenario is presented by a medic, mountaineer or former Special Forces member who has encountered such a scenario first hand.
