Survival courses are recommended for any individual who lives, play, or work in remote areas.

The basic introductory survival course, entirely completed online, teaches candidates basic concepts of survival, such as psychology of survival, signals, building shelters and fires, as well as finding drinkable water and food. The advanced survival course is a field course during which the concepts learned during the online course are practiced and improved.

The program is entirely delivered through an online course composed of 6 modules: Psychology of SurvivalSignalsSheltersFiresWaterFood

Each module includes a set of materials to be reviewed, in the form of videos, documents, and scientific papers. The candidate also writes a quiz after each module, and upon completion of all modules, a final paper.
