This course is hands-on; in the field and on the range. Students are provided with fundamental skills and drills to overcome practical challenges faced in a chaotic environment.
Range instruction includes threat and target assessment, multiple target engagements, reload methods, malfunction drills, team movement, and communication. In the field, students will be trained on land navigation, water sources and purification, field expedient shelters, wilderness and tactical medicine, meal prep, and tactical planning. Central to all this training are critical decision making, situational awareness, and mindset.
Under the observation and individual attention from our expert instructor cadre, students will be tested on their knowledge during range exercises. A final team exercise will test the student’s survival knowledge in a 10 hour field movement and navigation course. During this portion of the course, students will use all of their newly gained skills to survive, including making their own meals, shelter, and fires in the wilderness. This exercise is also filled with both team and individual challenges.
Please note, this is course is designed to place the student into a realistic training environment. The course is a continuous 24-hour evolution. Students are expected to sleep outdoors in the shelters they create or sleeping equipment they provide.
