We are developing perhaps the best survival training available anywhere. We start at the beginning, so nothing is missed, and so virtually anyone who follows our program can ultimately know the confidence that comes with a thorough knowledge, skill development, being prepared with appropriate gear and knowing how to utilize what is around them.

You may want to check out our section on COPs, which is our acronym for “Circles of Priority” our introductory guide to the training we provide. It illustrates our current precarious situation in the world, and gives a broad overall view of what we would like to accomplish for everyone in our training.

The Wilderness Innovation training is called CEC which stands for the three levels of accomplishment you would progress through which are:

  • Core – Raw, brute skills and gear to plow through tough situations from overnight to several days in duration
  • Efficiency – This is the MacGyver-like level where you learn to be more effective and clever, saving time and energy and stepping things up considerably from the Core Level
  • Comfort – Here we teach how to make things better to make the most out of whatever the difficulty may be, like “Swiss Family Robinson”
