Bushcraft Instructor Training Part 3 (Weekend 6)

Sunrise on Sunday morning

I’m very fortunate to be on an Instructor Training Programme provided by Jonny Crocket of Survival School, which is accredited by the NCFE at Level 4.  Following successful completion of parts 1 and 2 and I’m currently being assessed to deliver the individual modules that make up a NCFE Level 2 Course, which provides a thorough grounding in the core bushcraft skills. These modules are listed below and so that you can see how I’m progressing, I have marked the ones that have been completed.

  1. Welcome & Safety Brief
  2. Cutting Tool Safety – Complete
  3. Game Preparation (Pigeon) – Complete
  4. Breakfast Bread – Complete
  5. Cutting Techniques – Complete
  6. Shelters – Complete

Another successful course spent with great people and one at which I was able to get signed off for the water session and put the final peices of the puzzle together for the fire and foraging session. Once these are complete, I can move to the final stage of my training and run a weekend course. If all goes to plan, I will pass out with a Survival School InstructorCertificate and the Level 4 Bushcraft, Survival and Wilderness Living Skills Instructor and Mentor Certificate.

In the meantime, I’ll be out in the woods practicing my own skills to ensure a swift and successful instructor programme.
