In 2007 I started taking courses for the Wilderness Experience Certificate Program through Loyalist College that were taught by a group called Survival In the Bush, Inc. The instructors were some of the most knowledgeable and capable outdoors people and teachers I have ever met. On completion of all the courses in the WEC Program I joined the group as a field assistant and began to build on my skills and learn about guiding, leading and teaching in the outdoors.
I have been working with the group for over a decade now and participate in many courses both as an instructor for day courses and with groups of instructors for larger multi day courses of up to 60 students or more. As part of the group we teach for various post secondary institutions as well as providing custom courses for first responders, corporate and private customers alike.
