I took the beginner survival skills course and I loved all that I was taught. Some of the information was a refresher, but a lot of it was new. We went through many skills and were able to practice with instruction on those skills. This class is well worth the money spent and I’m excited to get into more advanced classes.

“The instructors are very informative and encouraging. They demonstrates and explains each skill thoroughly. They are knowledgeable and eager to teach, including but not limited to fire building, water procurement, shelter construction, and other survival skills.”

“I gained so much knowledge during my training.  The instructors are great, and  I got my first bow drill coal.  This is a very professional and organized school.  I wouldn’t change a thing. 100% Trail Blazer Survival!”

“I was really surprised by the basic survival course.  I wasn’t sure if I would learn anything because I have been training in survival for years, but I actually learned some new skills.  My goal is to make it on Alone or Naked and Afraid, and this school helped prepare me for that.”

Why is survival training important?

In today’s modern world of information, people have become so reliant on their gadgets and technology. They think because they have watched something on TV or a video online that they can go out and live off the land. That is farther from the truth. True survival and primitive living skills require years of experience. There are no shortcuts; however quality professional training can increase your odds of success drastically. Every year people die in the woods because of:

  • Hypothermia – Unable to maintain core body temperature
  • Dehydration – Lack of water, or inability to retain water due to consumption of hazardous water.
  • Malnutrition – Failure to manage caloric intake and energy expenditure

Adequate survival training is essential..
