You get lost on a hiking trail, turned around during a hunt, or stranded in a remote area, how do you survive? More than 2,000 people get lost in the woods each year and most survival scenarios.
EDC Wilderness Survival prepares you to survive a disaster, learning how to meet all your basic needs with a few, simple pieces of gear that are easy to carry and essential to your survival. The focus is on modern survival skills, emphasizing basic skills, equipment, and preparedness with the expectation of rescue within 72 hours. Utilizing everyday carry items you’ll learn to provide for your basic needs of shelter, water, fire, and food. This training is an investment in the ultimate back-up plan (you) if a situation goes south.
Takeaway: Students will know how to utilize every day carry items to secure shelter, water, fire, and food. They will leave with confidence in their ability to survive the unexpected.
