The intensive course is a quick course of only 1 weekend, Saturday and Sunday, starting at 8am on Saturday and ending at 12pm on Sunday.





$ 100.00.


Age: over 14 years and with parental consent if applicable.

This course is a fraction of the full VRB survival course.

All participants should be vaccinated against yellow fever, in addition to other immunizations, according to the age group. The vaccination card will be inspected upon arrival. Any illness, decease, injury, recent treatments,  special condition, and use of medications, should be communicated to Colonel Montibeller. 

1. The course starts at 08h00 on Saturday and ends on Sunday between 12h. There will be no tolerance for beginning the instructions. 

There will be no recovery of instruction. Still, try to keep the VRB informed. Remembering that there is no cellular signal in the region (VIVO is one operator that works fine there). 


How to get there: There's no direct bus liner from SP Capital to the course camp. There's a bus from Mairiporã station (Petropolis Alpes line). Get off at Buffet Italia and walk on foot towards the Cantareira Buffet Area, along a dirt road, pass through a stone portico, after 400 meters from the Buffet Italia, enter a gate on the left, just up a floor of bloques (50 meters before the Cantareira Space - note the signs of this space).

* Map * Getting there, the student must go directly to the course location (https://goo.gl/maps/oATVd1H2z3L2).


2. The course has no pranks, physical or mental pressure. There is no rush, no connection with military attitudes. We strictly follow the standards of environmental preservation.


3. Course totally aimed at life in the woods. The instructions are in the middle of the bush (https://goo.gl/maps/9u58zMhBGXM2) in fact, is in the Serra da Cantareira. There will be discomfort through deprivation of light, food, cold, heat, mosquitoes etc ...


4. All conclusive shall be entitled to * 1 Certificate *.

5. The course is set in a situation of survival where * a group of people * totally * unknown to each other * have been lost in the bush and * await air or land rescue *. Thus, the course is quite * static * and the displacements are short, not exceeding 200 meters per lap, notably for the search of water, entry and occupation of subbases and displacements for instructions. In the first incursion in the woods there will always be a guide (STAFF - monitor) guiding them.


6. Thus, the student assumes that he / she agrees to comply with the orders and guidelines of the guides, instructors and chief instructor (Colonel Montibeller - https://www.viaradicalbrasil.com/montibeller). All questions should be taken only and directly to the chief instructor (Colonel Montibeller).


7. By volunteering for a course of this level, the student assumes some easements, such as: making materials, items, kits as directed by the head instructor or other instructor.
