TRAINING & COURSES & SEMINARS


It is good to be prepared for all emergencies and many people are unaware of survival basics and how to sustain themselves on the land or even in an urban jungle during or after a catastrophie. We have developed a series of short programs to teach you how to handle situations in an emergency. For example many people have never used a firearm and therefore would not know how to hunt for extra food sources when in the wild. Basic self defence is another aspect of high stress urban rage when calamitous conditions apply and people are tipped over the edge of civilised living. Preparation is everything and some training could save lives in an emergency. How to survive in the outdoors basics. We also focus on how to build self reliance food systems like BIODOMES and AQUAPOINCS that will allow you to grow food all year round no matter where you are. As new products come onto the market and new technologies we run seminars and short programs to show you how to use the latest.

SEMINARS
We also run event seminars with guest speakers/experts from around Australia and the World. These seminars cover self reliance, off the grid living, how to survive in times of disasters, preparedness ideas, technologies available to assist survival in wild conditions and much more. It's a must attend if you are interested in learning how to prepare for a natural or man made disasters.

Duration 1 day - in classroom
This program shows you how to install security and surveillance systems and modifications to your home to be able to turn it into a protected dwelling in the event of a disaster, major slide into crime, anarchy and economic unrest. As history shows us, an economic crisis can occur in any country and along with it comes the fight between the haves and have nots. Crime escalates and personal protection becomes mandatory. Beyond the Hollywood hype of films like I AM LEGEND, THE ROAD, PANIC and others comes the reality of setting up basic protection in your home to protect your property, food supplies and loved ones. Sounds crazy in a country like Australia but Argentina was a recent example of mob rule after economic collapse and anarchy which eventually spread into the outer farming fringes when banks closed and economy collasped. In 2012 some banks in Italy are already closing access to monies as the Euro Zone comes under fire. This program which is run by a security consultant will show you how to prepare your home for such an emergency.

Cost: $550 (inlcudes morning and afternoon tea and BBQ lunch)
