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!
