2. Two Weekend Survival Workshops
The Edible And Medicinal Plants Walk
The Edible and Medicinal Plants Walk is a one-day familiarization course about wild edible and medicinal plants. It is a learning opportunity to increase your knowledge about plants. Moreover, the Edible and Medicinal Plants Walk is a 3-part series. It is taken individually in all the different seasons so that students learn the cycle of plants in their area. As such, the instructors will show you how to identify and harvest these natural resources. Additionally, the instructors of the Sigma 3 Survival School will cover the 50 most common plants in the local area of the school and in North America.
Furthermore, the Edible and Medicinal Plants course is a hands-on course. Therefore, you will participate in walks within several different types of ecosystems. Thus, these walks will show you how to find food in almost any environment. Moreover, students will have the opportunity to taste the identified plants. As a result, you will not only learn the edible uses, but also the medicinal, practical and various bushcraft uses of wild plants. Consequently, this learning opportunity will overwhelm you with the amount of information that you will receive. Therefore, you should bring enough writing material to take plenty of notes for later reference.
Topics covered include:
- Learning plant family identification patterns
- At least 50 different edible/medicinal plants
- How to prepare plants for edibility
- Cordage plants and useful bushcraft plants
- Medicinal Plant applications: treating cuts, anti-diarrheal, making primitive quick clot, stopping bleeding, purgatives, anti-fungal, stimulating the immune system, skin cancers, hygiene/cleansing agents, tannic acid uses, plants with salicin (aka aspirin), laxatives, and much more!
- What books to buy and how to start wildcrafting
This course will cover the basics of identification and procurement. Afterwards, if you want to upgrade your skills, we recommend taking the Herbal Medic course or the Wild Crafter courses.
The Weekend Survivor Course
The Weekend Survivor Course is for the people who cannot take off time from their employment to attend the more lengthy, multiple week survival classes! We want to be sensitive to respect your time with family and time for vacations. So, Rob Allen and Josh Hamlin came up with a learning opportunity to train you on the standard course skills in a series of weekend classes. As such, these courses will instruct you on the highlights of the more lengthy standard courses. Furthermore, our instructors will teach at a pace so that you can absorb the information. Additionally, Those living within driving distance of the Sigma 3 Survival School, now, can use their free weekends to increase their survival training and experience. While anyone can take the courses, its best suited for people within a 3-hour drive.
This series of classes will cover all the highlights of our Standard Courses, in a much shorter time frame. Furthermore, they will ensure you can absorb and replicate all the skills that you are taught. This course is 100% HANDS ON and in the field training. No power point, no classroom, only real dirt time! And you can bring your kids for cheap too!

We want to welcome Michael Lizotte as the newest member of the Sigma 3 Survival School family. He is from Canada and operates the Redbeard Survival School in Quebec.
Michael is a French Canadian who formally served with the Royal 22nd Regiment of Canada as a paratrooper. As a result, he completed tours in Afghanistan, Haiti, and Northern Quebec. Afterwards, Michael pursued his love for the outdoors. Later, in 2016, he participated in The Woods Canada Greatest Explorer Competition aiming to win the title of Canada’s Greatest Explorer. Michael’s love for the outdoors and survival training continues to grow. Subsequently, Michael went on to establish the Redbeard Survival School.
His Survival Training
Michael received his first knife at 4 years old. His grandfather taught him basic woodsmanship along with trapping and fishing. Michael quickly began to become more interested in wilderness living and survival. Later, he realized that teaching wilderness survival was his life’s passion, while serving in the Canadian Army. He quit the army in 2014 after 3 deployments to open his own survival school which became fully operational in 2016. Wanting to push further his instructions quality, he joins the 45 days instructor program with Sigma 3 where he graduated proudly. Now working full-time on his school, he always seeks to push his limits further into the survival culture.
He is qualified in winter survival, primitive skills, search-and-rescue, with additional skills in TCCC (Tactical combat casualty care), TIOP (Tactical Intelligence Operator).
His Survival School
Michael knew he would own a survival school since his childhood. He established the Redbeard Survival School in Quebec, Canada in 2016. The mission of Redbeard Survival is to educate amateurs and professionals in all fields, including police and military bodies, to avoid any situation of survival. The school states that by learning the basics of survival, students will become a key element in an emergency situation, preventing putting your life or that of your loved ones at risk. The approach that Redbeard Survival employs is based on live experiences and adapted to the reality of today. They also look at primitive techniques, while valuing modern techniques, so that students can be ready for any emergency situation.
Thus, we welcome Michael to the Sigma 3 Survival family!

BIG CHANGES! The Urban SERE and Wilderness SERE course are now one 7 day hardcore course!
We have been running our SERE training program for civilians for years and we have always had two components to the course. Urban and Wilderness SERE training courses were each 5 day courses. Now they are one 7 day course that is more exciting than before! The wilderness SERE training module covers survival tactics in the woods, when security and stealth is your biggest priority. All the survival tactics taught have an emphasis on stealth. Our urban component covers more about kidnapping and urban escape and evasion, surveillance and counter surveillance, comms and travel plans, and much more.
Both programs are equally good and have very little overlap between the two. But because so many people are on a time crunch for training with their busy lives, we decided to roll both programs together to give you one comprehensive course that covers it all. Most civilians don’t realize just how important this training is for them. Americans are the #1 target worldwide for the kidnapping industry. Just because your American, people in other countries think you are rich and before you know it you could be getting rolled up by some kidnap team. Statistically a civilian is far more likely to be kidnapped than a military member!
Many people are scared by the SERE training program, but that fear is totally unjustified. If your scared, your over thinking it! Most of the program is actually fun and exciting, not as hardcore as you might think. The interrogation phase is what most people stress about, and that phase is totally optional and you don’t have to do it to participate in it to attend the course. It is only about 2 hours out of 7 days of training, so don’t let the interrogation scare you off from the program. But if you do decide to participate in the Resistance Phase, you will be stun gunned, maced, and treated harshly. But after its over you will be immensely proud of yourself for not only surviving but escaping custody easily. And the more you use what we teach you, the less painful it will be. We have a 100% success rate of our students escaping illegal custody. You will get away after we get done training you. You’ll be able to escape handcuffs, zip ties, duct tape, rope, and much more! Anything that a captor could tie you up with, we will teach you how to beat it!
If you travel the world or believe one day you might need to escape and evade, then this is the course for you. We will cover all types of urban and wilderness survival tactics in this course and after the 7 days are over, you will be confident that you can survive just about any tactical survival situation. Check out the link below for more information on how you can get some SERE training!
