Video presentation of the course in Colombia  

Method of the course: Internal "Campsite".

The course begins in the morning of Friday 22, February with a theoretical class which will last four (4) hours where all the participants will receive information about basic definitions, technics and proceeding on survival. Under completion of it, the training on the ground will begin during three (3) days which include the same Friday, Saturday 23 and Sunday 24. The students will learn Survival techniques that will need to apply them on the ground by means of diurnal, nocturnal, natural and instrumental methods as well as diurnal and nocturnal Orientation and Land Navigation (crossing) techniques with some notions on First Aid. During the course a survival instructor will ever be together the students where one of the priorities of this outdoor event is to act as a true team with the essential importance that the choice of a leader has in the event you can get lost in the nature, in a wild, inhospitable, unknown and located far away from the immediate help given by rescuers or other persons,

This course will demand a high training on the ground because we are going to enter on a terrain with our own clothing, footwear and a very small backpack that we will make by using fabrics provided by us at the beginning of the course. GET READY to learn how to defend yourself in the nature, ever working as a team to use natural resources for your own benefit that is part of a course of that kind because we are going to be a team made by human beings who must survive in the wilderness where basically we will apply survival techniques as follow: First Aid, Signalling, Shelter, Water, Food, Fire, Clothing, Orientation, among others.
