Here’s an Overview of Our Training

Bob has done his best keep the pricing of this training affordable for most people. His philosophy is that money should not be a barrier to learning wilderness living skills.

Within this 72 Hour Wilderness Survival Training, we’ll cover a multitude of things (some of which are not listed on this page). This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Basic First-Aid and Self-Aid methodologies. We want to ensure you can prevent serious injury, illness, hypothermia, heat exhaustion, dehydration, frostbite, insect irritations and bites, snakebites, blisters and more. You’ll also learn to aid in and dress minor wounds.
  • Basic Compass and Land Navigation. You would be hard pressed to self-rescue (which is what we recommend) if you can’t find where you need to get to!
  • We’ll discuss and commit to memory the priorities of survival in a wilderness location. You will be tasked in being able to explain the importance and necessity of each.
  • Attitude is key in ANY emergency situation. This wilderness training dives deep into maintaining a positive, productive attitude while avoiding panic and increasing morale for your group.
  • We will create scenarios where you will then be able to describes the plan of action you would take to survive multiple, wilderness and weather conditions (this will include cold climate/ winter weather, damp/ wet forest conditions, hot and dry conditions in arid climates, high wind conditions in mountain or open ground terrain, and near or on the water’s edge conditions.
  • You will be expected to know the components of a proper, personal survival kit and be well versed in explaining the use of each item in your kit (including multi-use items).
  • We will cover 4-5 fire lays and at least 5 different fire lighting methods both man made methods and primitive methods.
  • We will cover self-rescue methods of gaining the attention of others to aid in your recovery. These include up to 6 ground-to-air signals, using a signal mirror on your compass (We use the Suunto MC2 compass), 7 methods of attracting attention without the use of signaling devices and how to turn your shelter into an emergency signal device.
  • You will learn at least 3 natural shelters and construct at least 1 natural shelter that you will spend the last night in! These shelters have little, to no negative impact on the surrounding environment and can be deconstructed easily, while allowing you to spend very little calories in the construction of the shelters.
  • You will be tasked in explaining how you can protect yourself against predators, insects, poisonous plants and more. There is no need to add injury to a survival scenario, so we want to ensure you can verbally demonstrate this critical information.
  • Bob will be demonstrating 5 ways to filter and prepare water for consumption. You will then duplicate Bob’s water preparation methods in real time. Also, Bob will be showing you multiple ways to collect water…even if you are in a salt water scenario!
  • Junk on the Bunk and Cover: In this lecture, Bob will be discussing proper clothing you should be considering for multiple types of weather and climates. You will then empty your packs and discuss what you have, what you should have and what you would add or take away in different scenarios. Finally, Bob will demonstrate different types of cover, other than clothing, that is easy to pack or manufacture from nature.
  • We will discuss plants, wild edibles and hunting/ trapping scenarios and why these things are to be avoided during a 72 Hour Wilderness Survival situation.
  • We will also be covering basic lashes, knots, camp craft, knife and tool safety and more.
  • Other items not mentioned on this list were likely mentioned in the video or will be discussed at the training dependent upon natural resources and environment.
  • Finally, we will lecture and do a Q&A session on applying your kit and new found knowledge to everyday scenarios, outside of a wilderness environment.
