SERE Training: Learn practical wilderness survival skills for any remote emergency around the world in a friendly and welcoming environment.
Our instructors are all former Air Force SERE Specialists that taught global survival, evasion, resistance, and escape techniques (S.E.R.E) to our US military. Classes range from an hour to several weeks based on our client’s interest, ability, and time frame. We offer standardized classes and private courses for individuals and groups around the country and welcome all demographics.
Our teaching model is based off of the five basic needs of a survivor: Signaling, Personal Protection (clothing/equipment, shelter, and fire), Sustenance (water and food), Travel Techniques, and Health. Responding appropriately to these needs in various global conditions with a component of prudence and creativity is the key to surviving life-threatening situations.
Training can be overarching and simplified for general conditions, or specialized based on a particular environment or skill. The basic needs can be modified for increased effectiveness in different climates and terrain such as: desert, arctic (above and below treeline), open ocean, rain forest, swamp, mountains, tundra, etc.
Though generally taught at a level that is intended for adult comprehension, many subjects and skills can be modified for children as young as 5 years old. Some skills and all of the information is also accessible for the elderly and those with various handicaps or disabilities.
We also offer classes to women and the LGBTQ community. No matter if you enjoy or fear the wild places of the world these classes can improve confidence and competence both in the back country and in life.
Whether you are driving in bad weather, hunting, trail running, backpacking, going on a major expedition, skiing, rock climbing, photographing wildlife, gathering wild edibles, taking a long walk with a friend, exploring a beautiful shoreline, practicing primitive skills, or so much more, this school has something to offer you.
