What to expect on the expert bushcraft skills course

The first day on the course is focused on ensuring that the students have the required level of skills to undertake the four-day assessment phase of the course. Once this has been determined, each student will be allocated an area of land in which to build a shelter, which is robust enough to withstand all types of weather conditions. From there students will get into a daily routine of general wilderness administration (collecting water and fire wood, ensuring an ample supply of food etc.).  At certain parts of the course, each student will be given some type of task by the instructor which they must complete. The tasks vary from making a simple item such as a spoon out of wood, to naming edible plants in the students immediate area. The course is a medium to high level physical and mental intensity.
