Made an enquiry earlier for a bushcraft course.. I was told it was being run by a certain Dr Lee Raye.
There is no doubt the Dr (Non-Binary individual) is a genuine Educator / University Lecturer, but have any of you heard of him in Bushcraft Circles and is he known as a Bushcraft Instructor??

Is this a distance learning course from the usa.? That's all I could find.
Dr lee raye (medical) sana university distance learning bushcraft course. There was a pdf to download to get details,, not going to bother doing that to get more info that I dont want myself.
Never heard of him/her, and I doubt many if any this side of the pond will have either, though you may be lucky..

Nope. Not heard of that one.

Have you read down the list of papers and conference talks on that page? If it were me, I would not find the list of subjects and titles encouraging for a bushcraft course instructor. They seem a little eclectic and those relevant to bushcraft appear so only in the most tangential manner.

I would contrast that with the work of Lisa Fenton, a lecturer at Cumbria University, who appears to be far less published, but who has a very solid background in bushcraft.

If I was looking for an instructor from academia, I would prefer one with a resume like Lisa's, rather than one that contains papers about the feeding habits of swallows, the medieval mania for beaver, Arthurian legend and the use of whale bone in Wales.

I'd be giving that a swerve.!
Money better spent on other courses with better known and accredited persons.
I've heard good reviews of Paul kirtly, and there are many other good ones online from known providers, or free you tube courses on relevant subjects such as mushroom and tree ident.
Go for them.
