Wilderness Survival Courses

Trial Blazer Survival School’s multi-day wilderness survival courses provide the survival skill you need in to live on in the wild.  We focus primarily on primitive skills taught with a combination of demonstration and hands-on, by a full-time wilderness survival instructor(s). The survival courses will introduce and give you practice with the survival skills to allow you to thrive in the wilderness with only a knife.

Choose either our Master Course (16 consecutive days) or take them as 3 independent wilderness survival courses ranging from basic to advanced in difficulty.  The basic course (Essential Wilderness Survival) is two days usually over a weekend, the intermediate course (Applied Wilderness Survival) is four days, and the advanced course (Advanced Wilderness Survival) is five days.  Additionally, there is a NOLS Wilderness First Aid two-day course, one day of plant identification, and two days of you putting your skills to the test.
