NEW SOLO Course:
Prepping for Disaster
**AVAILABLE AT OUR CONWAY CAMPUS IN 2018!!!
This is an eight day course for anyone looking to gain experience and knowledge in a disaster situation. Living in a world of uncertainty, war, drought, famine, and political unrest, we are faced with many possibilities for a disaster everyday.
This course will focus on the “in between” of a disaster. Not how to get to safety or how to start over. Rather, how to reestablish yourself and your loved ones to find a sense of stability in an unstable situation.
The core of this course will be very hands-on with minimal time spent in the classroom. Shelter building, fire making, wilderness first aid, pet first aid, and firearms safety are just some of the many things you will be immersed in while attending.
This is not a “certificate specific” type of program but instead is more of a unique learning experience. You will be expected to participate in all skills practice, physical fitness each morning, and the Field Training Exercise (FTX) at the end of the course.
**There are a few details about this course that are not typical of other SOLO courses. Students will be required to stay on campus and participate in physical fitness activities each morning. In addition, the course will culminate in a Field Training Exercise (FTX). Successful completion of the course will result in a 2-year Wilderness First Aid certification and a 2-year CPR certification. Students may also use this course as a Wilderness First Responder refresher option.
This course will use a hands-on approach for topics such as:
- Firearm Safety
- Fire Making
- Shelter Building
- Map Reading with Compass and Orienteering
- Camp Etiquette
- Knife, Axe, and Saw Use and Safety
- Physical Fitness
- Group Cohesion
- Pet First Aid
