The Survival Standard Program is a 3 part survival system designed to teach you the most fundamental principles of survival in the shortest time possible. Our goal as full time survival instructors is to train you to a level so that you understand the core concepts of survival so that you can survive in almost any environment you travel to with a minimal amount of modern tools! The confidence that survival skills gives you is like no other kind of training you can do in the world. At SIGMA 3 we refer to it as the “Martial Arts of Freedom”. Why? Because survival training is the ONLY type of training that will allow you to provide for your core human needs everywhere you travel in the world. With the ability to provide yourself with shelter, water, fire/warmth, food, navigation, medical, and security skills. You’ll be able to travel anywhere your heart desires without the fear that you won’t be able to provide for those core needs. This will empower you to go farther and longer in your outdoor adventures!

This is our most popular wilderness survival training course and it is the first of the 3 standard courses that will cover everything you need to know about bushcraft and survival. This course will cover all the most relevant aspect of short term primitive survival skills necessary to survive in any environment. Together we will build a foundation of skills you can count on when you have nothing else at your disposal. Technology is great and it a wonder of human innovation, but we as a society have become totally dependent upon it. These standard programs will give you the skills to survive when technology fails or things just go wrong!
