Sigma 3 Survival School is the largest and most comprehensive survival school in the world. We have more training locations and survival instructors around the globe than anyone else by a landslide, thanks to our Survival Instructor Program. We have had the privilege over the last decade to train 100’s of survival instructors from the outdoors industry and they are available for private/group bookings almost anywhere in the world.

SIGMA 3 Survival stands for Scout, Survive, Sustain. Which encompasses our philosophy of wilderness explorations combined with bushcraft skills. The idea behind our philosophy is that we teach you all the primitive skills you’d ever need to know to survive anywhere in the world, and then use those primitive skills to supplement or replace your survival gear needs.

SIGMA 3 Survival School is known for our intense and completely immersive wilderness survival and bushcraft programs. Over the last decade we have offered Survival, Tactical, Medical, & Preparedness programs of all types. But our primary focus and goal here is to train our students how to walk off into the wilderness with nothing but a knife and survive indefinitely.

We aren’t a school that teaches you how to get rescued when you’re lost. We teach you how to get lost in your adventures and shed your fear of the wilderness in general. With our standard training curriculum that has been tested and proven to be solid for over a decade, you can be assured the skills we teach you are the ones you need to know to not only survive, but thrive in the wilderness!


INSTRUCTORS: A complete list of our FEATURE INSTRUCTOR RESUMES is listed on the website. We have Survival TV personalities, and some of the most hardcore survival, tactical, and medical instructors on the planet. We only choose from the best of the best, compare our resumes with our competitions and then decide if the competition stacks up to our Elite Instructor Cadre!

CLASS SIZES: Class Sizes: Some of the biggest name schools in the country will fill courses of upwards of 30-200 people with only a few instructors. Do your research before buying. Our courses never exceed 15-20 and we have approximately a 1:10 instructor to student ratio so that you will get the time you need to mentor you through some of these skills. There is very little classroom time and our courses are almost entirely hands on training in the field! We try to keep the training fun and exciting and you will never be bored at one of our training events!

DISCOUNTS: Usually discounts are only given to people that are on very tight budgets or for small groups. Contact us if you think you might qualify for a discount. We try to work with everyone and if you legitimately can’t afford training then we will work with you to make sure that you get that training. To setup a payment plan or group/family discount, then contact us today for details.

*We offer special discounts to military veterans. Contact us for more info on getting a military discount.

CHILDREN: Children 10 years and up are allowed at most of our courses. We prefer that a parent attend with the minor but if the parent absolutely can’t attend then we will work with you to make sure your child gets some world class training. Certain courses such as the Instructor Course, SERE and Urban E&E are 18 and up only. Contact us if you have any questions about our child policies. CONTACT US

REFUNDS: Almost all our courses offer a refund, minus a 30% cancellation fee. We have a cancellation fee, to discourage last minute changes in booking. We don’t offer any refunds with cancellations less than 2 weeks from date of the course. You can transfer your credit to other classes up to 3 years from purchase date. Many people look at the weather or have doubts about their ability to perform during survival training and get cold feet! Don’t stress about it. This stuff is easy with our help! We will walk you through it. The only courses we don’t offer refunds for are the Instructor Course and any Featured Guest Instructor courses we might be hosting.  There is absolutely no money back on the instructor course but you can use that credit for literally anything you want if you decide to not take the course. We prefer that people cancelling just transfer their credit to another course and you can transfer that credit as many times as needed. Contact us if you have any questions regarding our refund policy.
