Structured outdoor survival courses and training delivered by experienced and professional instructors
Realistic Survival Training
Survival training should be about teaching people how to make good decisions, at the right time and in the right way. Nothing more, nothing less.
At Original Outdoors we aren’t very interested in survival training as an ‘experience’ We don’t run camping weekends with the word ‘survival’ laid over the top – our structured survival training courses are designed to give participants realistic, useful and appropriate skills training in a safe but challenging environment. Our instructors come from the world of Search and Rescue, expedition leadership, remote-area medical care and the armed forces.
The survival courses offered by Original Outdoors in the UK are broken down into environment-specific courses as the skills required for one environment do not necessarily transfer over to another.
Survival training within a structured pathway
We created the Environmental Survival Training Framework (EST Framework) to contain our outdoor safety and skills courses within a structured training progression. This means that if you attend a Level 1 EST Framework course with us then there is a clear pathway on to the next course – and onwards right up to training to become a survival instructor.
