When the world is in chaos and you become threatened, do you have the skills to survive and protect the ones you love? Could you endure in the wilderness unassisted or tactically move to a recovery area? Are you mentally and physically prepared? Could you escape and survive? This course is designed to ensure the answers to those questions are, “Yes!”
Learn to shoot, move, and communicate individually and in teams. Acquire skills in land navigation, field expedient medical care, communication, tactical preparedness, and field craft survival. Gain critical thinking, situational awareness, and decision-making skills that you can execute under stress.
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.
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.
In the final exercise, the students will be assigned to teams with an instructor who will act as a monitor. As a team, they will plan a route, prepare their gear, and execute the plan. During the exercise, students will be tested on tactical movement, planning, field craft, first aid, and land navigation skills. At the various objectives, there will be go/no-go tests that result in rewards based upon competency. Upon completion of the training evolution, students and instructors will meet at the recovery area for a Warrior’s Meal, awards/certificate presentation, and a review with lessons learned and self evaluations.
