Quad bike training and survival training

Lately I have been very busy out doors doing quad bike training and survival training. The quad bike training was a defensive driving course which covered all aspects of riding and handling the machine in all different conditions. This was mostly an introduction and assessment to obtain accreditation to ride a quad in the work place. Further quad bike training will take place on site in real Antarctic conditions.

Survival training consisted of survival techniques in adverse conditions and getting familiar with equipment. We practiced putting up various tents and setting up survival bivi bags. Training then moved on to search and rescue techniques and advanced rope rescue techniques for recovering casualties from crevasses. As I have applied for the position of Search & Rescue team leader I was placed under pressure to organize the rescue team and perform several recovery's.

      People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.

      These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now.

This ensures access to all year round training, eliminating the dependency on weather or tidal conditions. Realistic, practical training is further enhanced with easy access to the North Sea. family survival course scam
