The first day of the course is conducted on-site in the “survival base”; built of improvised methods accepted in our latitudes.

Then you will learn about the latest equipment and find out what exactly should be selected for various survival activities and emergency situations.We will talk about knives and how to select them, based on most models most commonly used in survival activities available on the Polish market. Everyone will have the opportunity to test top models and to answer the question which one to choose. We have in our collection a few dozen survival knives and we tested more. Hence, we have a vast knowledge of work with these tools.
The whole lecture will, of course, be combined with practical classes on techniques to start fire. From the preparation of tinder; feather sticks; and hearth to methods of starting a fire using many types of flints the highest quality available on the Polish market (BCB, MVH, LMF, Exotac).
You will learn the examples of the different types of flints and which one to choose for your type of activity field. In addition, we show how to start a fire using improvised means such as flares, ammunition, chemicals, etc.
During the training you will eat military rations with a heater, which will be your supply of food during training – such a piece of equipment is also justified because during natural disasters just such food will be provided to cut-off areas. It is worth to get familiar with this and learn how to use them.
At the training we focus on a few key elements. One of them is the alarm signal. You will learn how to call for help in any conditions. We teach you how to use the sun and heliograph, how to do it at night, how to prepare campfire lights. The full list of topics that will be presented at the training can be found in the table below. Each of them will be carried with you in real terms in real time. This is our greatest quality. On the second day you will know the ins and outs of navigating through field objects and compass.
