These programs cover the highlights of our longer courses. Best for locals and those with limited time.
PHASES 1-3 (STANDARD & INSTRUCTOR)
Phase 1- Foundational Skills
The first 3 courses in the standard program are designed to teach you a foundation of skills that will work anywhere in the world for your short-term to long-term survival needs. This is all bushcraft and survival related skills with an emphasis on having minimal tools and equipment.
Includes: Survival Standard, Adv Standard, Primitive Standard
Phase 2- Beyond Survival
This second phase of courses is designed to teach you the add-on skills that you must have for a foundation of long-term survival. The Wild Crafter will teach you how to make plant medicine and process wild edibles. The Primitive Bowyer will teach you how to make a functional bow for hunting purposes that can be used to take game of any size.
Includes: Wild Crafter, Primitive Bowyer
Phase 3- Testing Phase
This is where our programs start to get real tough! Scout Survival will start you out with nothing but a knife and a piece of paracord and test all the primitive skills you’ve learned up to this point. SERE is designed to teach you how to survive the urban jungle and how to escape and evade from any dangerous situation. Both courses have a high tap-out rate!
The instructor program is considered by most to be one of the most intense and comprehensive survival training programs in the world. The Instructor program is essentially the entire Standard program all rolled into one, with SERE added! The 45 Day program follows the Survival Standard training program, except there is an entirely different set of standards for Instructor Course attendees than for Survival Standard students. As an instructor candidate, for example; you will be required to sleep in primitive shelters and completely immerse yourself in the training system for the entirety of the program. We believe full immersion is the best way to learn these skills in the shortest period of time possible and we are going to fully immerse you into the world of survival starting on Day 1.
The Level 1 Course is comprised of the following courses: Survival Standard, Adv Standard, Primitive Standard, Wild Crafter, Bowyer, Scout Survival, and SERE
45 DAY SURVIVAL INSTRUCTOR PROGRAM (LEVEL 1)
JUNGLE AND COASTAL SURVIVAL PROGRAM (LEVEL 2)
LEVEL 3 CERTIFICATION STANDARDS
OUR MOST POPULAR OPTION!
This is the best option for most people just looking to learn a lot of skills in a short period of time. All the Standard courses are less than a week in length and will provide you with a growing set of foundational skills you will practice until you’re ready to test yourself in the wild alone! These courses have the greatest flexibility for scheduling and we allow you to tailor the experience to the level of intensity you want. During the Survival Standard, Adv Standard, and Primitive Standard you can choose to sleep in primitive shelters or in normal camping equipment. You’re even allowed to sleep in your vehicles or just be as comfortable as you’d like, Tailor your experience based on your own personal wants!
Not everyone wants to rough it, so we leave all options open for what the student wants. You’ll learn a ton of survival skills in this program that will give you the knowledge to survive short to long term anywhere in the world. This is our most recommended program, and we always suggest starting with the Survival Standard, even if you are an experienced outdoorsman. The Survival Standard is more advanced than most expect and we jump right into primitive skills from Day 1.
Weekend courses are primarily for locals and people that are only looking for short term training sessions due to limited time available in their schedules. We can’t possibly be as comprehensive in shorter courses, so we try to take the highlights from our standard courses and compact them into a shorter time frame. The weekend survivor program is basically a shortened version of our survival standard program rolled into 6 weekends. We even have a final test where you get to do a mini scout survival for the weekend and test the new skills you learned.
The Urban Escape and Evasion course is a 3 day course that is essentially the urban survival highlights from our 7 day SERE course. All the weekend courses tend to be easier than the standard programs and are more laid back in general. These are perfect options for families and people looking to have a mini vacation with family or friends.
Includes: The Weekend Survivor, Urban Escape and Evasion, Wild Plant Walks
