We want to ensure that you have the skills and the know-how to travel the world safely.

It is run by highly experienced travellers as well as ex-members of the British army, who are determined to make sure that you have the confidence and knowledge to make sure you're comfortable with getting off the beaten track and making the absolute most of your time away.
What’s will I learn?

I really found the course useful, even though I have been travelling many times. The advice and support you get is definitely worth it (especially as it could really help you when you're away!). Charlie and Claire are lovely, and they were more than happy to answer any questions that you may have, even if you think they are silly. Charlie and Claire really do encourage you to have the best time possible, but want to make sure that you are safe doing so.
