Advanced Survival

4 days, 3 nights, 3.5 CEU's

 

Prerequisite: You must have completed at minimum the Pioneer Survival course before enrolling.

The Advanced Survival Class places a great demand on your ability to perform skills taught in other courses at The Pathfinder School ranging from friction fire off the landscape to advanced navigation to long term shelter construction and water disinfection. You are expected to “own” the Basic and Intermediate level skills, therefore instruction in this course is limited to new topics only. We will test the limits of your current knowledge base forcing you to under-go stress, water, sleep and food deprivation until you accomplish true to life tasks that may be needed in a real emergency.

Lessons are taught and deliverables added daily regardless of whether or not the entire group is caught up, which brings many to the mental breaking point. There is an 80% tap out rate for this course primarily due to students that do not physically and mentally prepare themselves beforehand by training in all the skills of previous courses, exercising regularly and mentally expecting the unexpected. Critical thinking and time management skills are vitally important in this course, often more so than skill.

IMPORTANT: Regardless of your experience or skill level in the woods, the Advanced class is the most intense and rigorous class you will likely ever complete.  It has been compared to special forces training by those in the armed services (their words, not ours)- so you should be reasonably fit and healthy to expect completing this course. This class will include treks up to 20 miles daily collecting resources over terrain which may be very muddy and uneven while carrying your gear. All food, water and toilet facilities must be procured from the landscape with minimal gear.

If you suffer from a medical condition or chronic pain, please bring your prescribed medicines with you. If you have recently undergone surgery or a hospital stay within the last 30 days, DO NOT attempt this course until you have had more time to recuperate.

It is highly recommended that you physically prepare yourself at least a month in advance to this or any other Pathfinder course by hiking/ walking regularly (at least 3 times weekly) for 5K working up to a pack weight of 50lb before the class begins. As the premier school of self-reliance, our training exceeds that of any other school in the nation; so please take it seriously and take the time to physically prepare. It is strongly recommended to take the Basic, Pioneer, Scout and Wilderness First Aid classes before taking this Advanced class.

  • Documents note Continuing Education Units awarded for which some employers may offer educational benefits.
