The Primitive Skills Standard is the 3rd in a series of 3 Standard bushcraft programs and will give you the last of primitive survival skills you’ll need in your long term survival toolbox. This survival training system is designed to systematically teach you all the base foundational survival skills needed to survive almost anywhere. No matter where you like to adventure. After taking the standard courses, you will carry the knowledge to recreate all the essential technology you’ll ever need to survive in relative comfort. Our programs are designed to teach you how to live off the land and what it provides. This course in particular is going to focus heavily on camp craft, long term sustainment, and advanced primitive skills to include: flint knapping, primitive pottery, atalatl, arrow making, green bow construction, and much more. Its not necessary to take the previous standard courses in order to take this one, but you should have a good understanding of bushcraft before attending this course. People that have attended other survival schools are welcome to try and jump in here.
