Delivered by Anthony Eddies-Davies of Adventure Consultancy Worldwide Limited, we are the only international training provider of safety courses specifically designed for production crews across a spectrum of challenging shoot locations - water, outdoor terrain, boat, ice, at height.

Created with accrediting governing body Rescue 3 40 years experience, these courses draw on Anthony's extensive expertise as a location director, film fixer, logistics, health and safety cover provider on a wide range of challenging media shoots across the world, including for Amazon Prime, BBC, Sky, Netflix, National Geographic, Disney, Warner Bros.

The course is aimed at production crew who have little or no experience, who wish to gain confidence on flat or moving water. Successful candidates gain an internationally recognised 3 year qualification for their CV, and in an era where insurance companies are increasing health and safety requirements on shoots, this can be a distinct advantage.

Our tailored courses adddress the varied roles across a production crew helping students to understand and assess the environment they are called to work in, and to understand safety equipment and techniques to keep you and your colleagues safe.
