Level 3 Applied Wilderness Skills CQ NCFE Accredited


The Aim of the Applied Wilderness Skills Course is to teach you how to survive in Wilderness Areas.  The Survival School Applied Wilderness Skills Course is probably one of the best bushcraft courses in the country. Not only do you get the best scenery in the country, but it is also a chance to live and learn bushcraft in an extreme and sometimes hostile environment. This course is about learning to live in wilderness areas and how to look after yourself and others in remote wilderness locations. This is a bushcraft course rather than a survival course.
