Trainer for autonomy in natural environments. Creator of "Horizon-experience"
Gatien has spent most of his career with the Commando Mountain group, a special unit for Alpine Hunters.
It's after having followed courses of survival in forest and cold weather that he decided to develop, organize and supervise a survival training in hostile territory specific to the Commando Mountain Group.
In parallel, Gatien designed and marketed a survival kit - The Tube - which was adopted by some units of the French special forces.
This know-how could be implemented during its various missions and external operations (Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Norway, United Arab Emirates ... .forests and mountains of Europe.)
