    that's awesome, congrats
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Congratulations Anthony. That is a long list of requirements.

    What organization issues this certification?

    We have nothing like this over here, to my knowledge, from any official organization like the Red Cross or FEMA, for civilians to access.

    That is quite an accomplishment. Congratulations.

    Is that a military organization or private organization?

    We have nothing like this over here, to my knowledge, from any official organization like the Red Cross or FEMA, for civilians to access.
    This is a privately owned company, not military,
    The head instructor has gotten his instructors training From SAS he spent about 6 months abroad training with them to achieve it.
    The company itself has been going well over 10 years, and is Likely the only School of its kind in Southern africa, he often trains Game rangers on survival...
    We have some local affiliations with various groups, like ex military ( 32nd battalion) and Local Game rangers, and many various other players with in the Farming, nature and wild life organisations..

    Thanks for alll the congrats,
    I still have a bit more to do before I can be called an instructor, but I am starting with logging the hours to do the tests..
    I keep you guys updated etc as things progress,
    Our actual aim for the group I am with is to make our training world wide known and recognized.. we may get there.. its a long road.
