Grand Syllabus: Instructor Trainee Program, door Mors Kochanski. Deze syllabus is, wat Mors zou zeggen, een lijst met specifieke vaardigheden die je nodig hebt om een ââgoed afgeronde bushcraft instructeur te worden. Als geheel is het een compilatie van wilderniskennis en -vaardigheden die van speciaal belang zijn voor instructeurs en serieuze studenten. Hoewel niet bedoeld voor de beginner zul je er ook dan een goed referentiehandboek aan hebben.

As a whole, it is a compilation of wilderness knowledge and skills of special interest to instructors would be instructors and serious students. While not intended for the beginner, should they decide to purchase, they will have a longtime reference in which to grow.
Mors Kochanski is known throughout North America for his extensive work in outdoor education, survival and wilderness living. His enthusiasm for wilderness recreation, his extensive knowledge of the field, and his desire to learn everything there is to know about the wilderness has made him one of the foremost authorities on wilderness skills. Mors Kochanski has been an outdoor educator and survival instructor for over 40 years, twenty three of which as a sessional professor for the University of Alberta; a few months of which were at the Canadian Department of National Defense Survival School at Jarvis Lake, Alberta. For many years Mors instructed courses at the Blue Lake Centre run by the Alberta Department of Culture Youth and Recreation, and finally 17 years for the School District 59, at Dawson Creek, British Columbia to the benefit of thousands of elementary school children. All the while, this tireless scholar did copious research, freelanced as an instructor, and wrote numerous magazine articles for Alberta Wilderness Arts and Recreation Magazine, various popular aid-memoir booklets and the instant classic “Northern Bushcraft” (now known as Bushcraft). This is just a handful of Mors’ outdoor education accomplishments to preface his new book that is published by Karamat Wilderness Ways. Today, if a course or instructor has any solid foundation in modern survival skills or Bushcraft, the odds are that they are likely based on a teaching, a skill or idea that Mors had some input in developing – whether they know it or not.
