The structure of the course is divided into five main modules (acumen) which we believe to be the building blocks for success: physical, natural, social, business and technical acumen. In all cases, resident professionals, as well as guest instructors are utilised to offer the young men training which is both practical and current.
During the programme real life situations manifest themselves and these are normally last minute. Questors are given the opportunity to design and implement procedures from safety procedures to organisational structures. Ensuring that any changes necessary are implemented on the spot to ensure a smooth delivery of the task at hand.
Examples could be a veld fire in Quiet Waters, animals which have been snared in a poachers snare or some other environmental disaster.
This is known as learning by rote, or learning by doing and is the prime building block on which Quest is built.
