Other than gaining a solid foundation into becoming a survival instructor in an ever growing industry or becoming a proficient outdoorsman, this class will prepare you for other careers in outfitting, guiding, outdoor leadership and many other outdoor professions. You will be able to put 500+ hours of training on your resume, as well as, the receipt of a nationally recognized Wilderness First Responder Certification from Offgrid Medic LLC. A WFR Cert is the gold standard and required for many outdoor industry jobs and no other survival school can offer you that certificate in addition to 500 hours of training on your resume.

You will not be trained by a single instructor, but rather a team of experts in their field to include tracking, counter tracking, modern navigation, camouflage and concealment, wilderness medicine, flint knapping and more. Of course we will teach you all of the necessary core survival skills such as fire making, knot tying, shelter building, water procurement and purification, hunting, trapping and many more skills. We won’t just show them to you once, but these core skills will be revisited, reproduced and driven into your mind until you have them mastered. Every day you will be tasked and tested with the skills until you know them like the back of your own hand.

At the end of this course you will receive a written and physical test. Should you want to become an instructor candidate for TSU you must pass this test. Though we will do everything in our power to help you make this happen, some may not pass, but all will join our brotherhood of Colorado Woodsmen. Either way, you will become part of the TSU family.


  • A nationally recognized Wilderness First Responder Certification from Offgrid Medic LLC.
  • Skills that will make you more prepared and more valuable than most, in difficult situations.
  • Have the confidence and the skills to venture into the backcountry with little gear.
Our teaching style is about quality over quantity. We will start out by teaching you core survival skills to include wilderness medicine and build up to touch on more advanced techniques. Not only will you learn what it takes to get back home but we will also teach you what it takes to stay in the wilderness for as long as you want. We will teach you about fires, shelters, water purification, food procurement, wild edibles, tools, knots, signaling, self-rescue, and real navigation with a map and compass, until it is burned into your head. Later in the course we will move on to advanced training like flint knapping, primitive hunting tools, field butchering, skinning, hide tanning, tracking, and navigation. The final days of the course are scenario based where we will test your skills in a controlled, but difficult environment where you can put most of the learned techniques into play.

You will be training with us in the woods for 50 days straight. We will allow you breaks to rest and resupply, but will encourage you to not enjoy the comforts of modern society while you are with us. By avoiding this temptation, you will challenge yourself in this totally engrossing experience and bring your skills, knowledge and survival psychology to its maximum potential
