Basic Survival Course

June 6 @ 8:00am - June 9 @ 5:00pm

Adirondack Mountains, NY

THIS COURSE IS NOT BY READYMAN

 

During the Basic Survival Course we will teach you the skills you need to survive an emergency situation. You are going to learn everything you need to do until you can either self-rescue or be rescued.

This course is focused on being prepared ahead of time with the necessary gear to provide for your needs. We will teach you what to pack so that you are ready for emergencies and how to use it effectively. This allows you to be more prepared for an emergency as you develop additional skills and gain valuable experience during future courses and become less and less reliant on gear.

Emphasis will be placed on critical thinking and prioritizing tasks to meet your needs during an emergency. You will learn techniques for starting and maintaining fires in an emergency. This includes everything you need to know about modern ignition sources, emergency tinder, and proper fire lays. You will learn how to build simple and effective shelters to protect you from exposure to the elements. In addition, we will teach you how to filter and disinfect water to make it safe to drink, build a foundation of easy to identify wild edibles, and some useful trapping and fishing techniques.

More importantly, you will be taught techniques that could prevent a survival situation from happening in the first place. You will learn basic first aid for common wilderness injuries, basic map reading, and land navigation. You will also learn techniques to signal for rescue both day and night.

This course is the foundation for the Intermediate and Advanced Survival Courses. You must complete this course prior to attending either of those. This is a patch-earning course. Upon successful completion, you will earn the coveted Flint & Steel Critical Skills Group patch with the “Basic” rocker. These cannot be purchased and are only available to students that earn them through training.

Intermediate Survival Course

August 15 @ 8:00am - August 18 @ 5:00pm

Adirondack Mountains, NY

THIS COURSE IS NOT BY READYMAN

 

The Intermediate Survival Course is designed to build upon the skill you learned during the Basic Survival Course and teach you additional skills that allow you to be less reliant on gear and more reliant on yourself and what nature provides. The is the “walk” phase of our complete “crawl, walk, run” system of training.

During the Intermediate Survival Course, emphasis shifts from being fully prepared and equipped, to learning to do more with less. You will learn to survive with only a few items and rely more on primitive skills and what nature provides. Learning these intermediate skills allows you to be more prepared for an emergency with more reliance on yourself and nature and provides you with the necessary primitive skills as a back-up for when gear gets lost, broken, or forgotten.

During the Intermediate Survival Course we will teach you the skills you need to survive an emergency situation. You are going to learn everything you need to do until you can either self-rescue or be rescued.

Emphasis will be placed on critical thinking and prioritizing tasks to meet your needs. You will learn techniques for starting and maintaining fires, build effective shelters to protect you from exposure to the elements. In addition, we will teach you how to filter and disinfect water to make it safe to drink, continue to build a library of easy to identify wild edibles, and some more useful trapping and fishing techniques.

More importantly, you will be taught techniques that could prevent a survival situation from happening in the first place. You will learn medicinal plants to use for wilderness injuries, intermediate map reading and land navigation navigation skills.

This course, along with successful completion of the Basic Course, continues the foundation for the ultimate test of your skills and self-reliance: the Advanced Survival Course. You must complete this course prior to attending the Advanced Course. This is a patch-earning course. Upon successful completion, you will earn the coveted Flint & Steel Critical Skills Group patch with the “Intermediate” rocker. These cannot be purchased and are only available to students that earn them through training.

Advanced Survival Course

September 12 @ 8:00am - September 15 @ 5:00pm

Adirondack Mountains, NY

THIS COURSE IS NOT BY READYMAN

 

The Advanced Survival Course is designed to take the skills and experience you have gained from both the Basic and Intermediate Survival Courses, and apply them to a fully self-reliant survival situation where all you will have available are the clothes on your back, a knife, and what nature provides. This is the “run” phase of our complete “crawl, walk, run” system of training.

Our system recognizes the need for gear-reliance for people who have not yet fully developed the necessary skills and don’t yet have the experience to provide for their basic needs from nature. As skills and experience develop, the person can make an individual choice as to what gear they do and don’t need, and what they can use from nature to replace it. Gear-reliance is the safety net that is used while learning to become more self-reliant.

During the Advanced Survival Course, heavy emphasis will be placed on learning and applying primitive skills. You will learn to survive with only the clothes on your back and a knife. Learning these advanced skills allows you to rely on yourself and nature in an emergency.

This course, along with successful completion of the Basic and Intermediate Courses, continues the foundation for self- and nature-reliance. This is a patch-earning course. Upon successful completion, you will earn the coveted Flint & Steel Critical Skills Group patch with the “Advanced” rocker. These cannot be purchased and are only available to students that earn them through training.
