What Does a Normal Day Look Like?
Escape and Evasion 101 begins at 8:00 am with an introduction of all instructors and students. Coffee, water, and basic snacks are provided. However, we recommend that you bring any additional drinks or snacks that you wish to enjoy throughout the day. Most of the morning will then be spent in the classroom for interactive lecture. We recommend that each student brings a single subject notebook for note taking. Lunch is provided, but students are welcome to bring their own food and drink.
After lunch, lecture gives way to interactive exercises and students are urged to step outside of their comfort zone and take part in each activity. Once we have completed the hands-on training, the class will travel to an alternate location to actively participate in a staged evasion. After that, each student that has completed this exercise will be awarded a certificate of completion!
We limit class sizes to ensure that each of our students gets the most from this experience.
