This class is the foundational precursor for all other classes. It will give the student a good foundation for primitive and modern survival techniques in the following areas: first aid, signaling, body temp regulation, fire creation, shelter building, water procurement, and land navigation. Additionally we will go over the tools that we carry as survivalist as well as a discuss building a safety first and priority oriented mindset. Mentality is essential to survival. We teach realistic survival and pride ourselves on hands on training so be prepared to do some work, cover a lot of material, and probably get a bit dirty.
