About SERE Training School
The instructors at SERE Training School impart decades of wilderness-survival know-how during outdoor, hands-on courses. Participants prepare themselves to live self sufficiently off the land using both modern and primitive techniques, which can come in handy when stranded outdoors or during natural disasters. During the Core Survival Skills Adventure Clinic, for example, up to 30 students spend five hours learning to create fire using sticks, build shelters with natural materials, purify water, and feed themselves off the land. The Ancient Artisans Workshop teaches novices how to fashion crude implements from scratch with materials found in nature, and how to use them while out in the wilderness. The school also offers team-building workshops and private events.
