Course design This is the most intense and long term wilderness survival training that Sigma 3 offers. This is the best way to take all our classes at once and become a Certified Survival Instructor for Sigma 3. You will learn all you need to know about survival and then have the option to earn money training others in survival skills! This course is our entire standard program all in one setting and a whole lot more! Skills will be worked in much greater depth and we devote many hours to the mastery of individual skills. Course focus In this program you will start with the survival priorities and then build on them to increase your bushcraft knowledge. Sigma 3 doesn’t teach you how to get out of the woods; we teach you how to live in them. You will become proficient in shelter, water, fire, food, tools, medical, bow making, navigation, and much more. You will learn all these survival skills with primitive methods as well as modern ones. Sigma 3 specializes in not only surviving, but we take our students knowledge level to such a high degree that you will be very comfortable anywhere you travel in the world. Knowledge weighs nothing and we are going to throw everything we possibly can at you, so be prepared! If you want to challenge yourself and learn these skills intensively and all in one blast, then this is the program for you! Course goals The point of this course is to teach an average person to walk off into the wilderness with nothing but a knife and survive indefinitely in comfort! This is the most comprehensive wilderness survival course on the market today! No other school offers such a diverse set of skills in one course and all in one session. This course is designed to take the average person and turn them into a well-trained survival instructor, capable of living off the land for long periods of time with minimal equipment. Who are your instructors? Your instructors include Robert Allen (Founder), Josh Hamlin (Lead Primitive Skills Instructor), and Level 3 Apprentices. How long will I be training? You will spend 40 days straight in the woods. This is the most intense and effective way to learn high performance survival skills. You will sleep in the shelters you create and be completely immersed into real world survival training. When you graduate, you will receive a Sigma 3 Instructor Certification which will make you eligible in the future to teach certain courses for us in your area. When you graduate, the Sigma 3 Certification provides you the credibility you have earned for passing the challenging tests and reproducing the critical skills to survive and teach others. Come prepared to work hard, face tough challenges, and push your limits to achieve Survival Certification! Location All courses will be hosted in our Arkansas Headquarters location only. You will stay the whole month in our survival village and stay in primitive shelters. It’s a requirement of graduation that you sleep the whole month primitively. In Arkansas, we have an extreme bug problem at the camp during certain seasons. Ticks, chiggers, and mosquito are in great abundance. So you should treat your clothing with permethrine. Very bad weather is common and cold wet conditions can be followed by days with heat and humidity. 2929 Dorothy Allen Way Huntington , AR 72940 Our HQ camp includes 7 stocked ponds and a good sized creek. With 400 acres total for our main camp area and access to another 1000 acres, we can test multiple skills in different areas. We may travel into the national forest on occasion as needed for skills development. 2 – SCHEDULE Schedule Itinerary will vary according to many different conditions, but you will learn the survival standard program and a ton more than is covered in any course we offer. This course requires mastery of the skills and you will be pushed to succeed. We will teach you everything you need to know to survive comfortably with limited equipment in the harshest of conditions. You will occasionally get a day off to shower, and do things that you need to do in town. At least one day a week will be for nothing but rest and recuperation from the intense training. Except during testing phases! Itinerary Week 1: Survival Standard Curriculum Week 2: Advanced Survival Standard Curriculum Week 3: Wild Plants, Advanced Primitive Skills, and Bow Making Week 4: Survival Week Including Scout Survival and Knife Only Survival Week 5: SERE, Advanced Bushcraft, Long Term Survival, Hunting or Fishing Trips, BBQ and Graduation NOTE: Each week has additional techniques and variations not present in standalone courses. Spring vs. Winter courses The spring course will focus primarily on fishing and wild plants skills, while the winter course will focus more heavily on hunting. Both courses are excellent, but different seasons emphasize different skills. If you take the winter course, plan on hunting with your custom longbow that you will make. If you take the spring course then plan to spend a lot of time in and around the water, fishing and living off the stream. Life is good in either course you take. Bow making and hunting We will be making our own custom longbows from scratch and you will need to purchase at least one stave. You can build as many as you like to improve your bow-making skills. Hickory staves are and Osage Orange staves are 0. You will use your bow to hunt game during the various food procurement phases of the class. You should bring camo clothing with you if you have it. Be prepared to go trekking as part of your skill building work! 3 – Gear For Classes What survival gear do I need to take the course? All equipment needed for the course can be purchased through our Survival Store, or you can purchase similar quality items elsewhere. You are not required to purchase these exact items through us in order to attend course. You just need the same equipment and of similar quality! The items we offer are the best you can get for the money and we highly recommend these same items no matter where you buy them. You can also ship all your survival items to us to store for when you get here for the course, so you don’t have to fly or drive with them! Recommended items list Please help support Sigma 3 by purchasing your gear through our survival store. These funds are used to help grow the instructor course and improve the school so that we can expand the instructor program. Minimum gear recommendations The Sigma 3 Scout Survival Level 1 Kit has all the survival tools you need for our survival instructor course and these are high quality items that are hand selected by Sigma 3 Survival Instructors! Each item in the kit is one of the best on the market for the money and this is what our instructors recommend for our courses. In the past, some students expressed frustration with finding the right gear and getting everything together for class. The cost of multiple shipping charges of buying all the items separately exceeds the cost of just buying everything in a single kit that we’ve assembled. It’s a great scout survival kit, bug out kit, go bag, and much more. Add other items to this kit depending on your area and needs, and you have a decked out scout survival bag that helps you survive in comfort. We suggest a good hammock and tarp to go with this and a few Camp Ready Meals! With this kit and our training you can survive like a king in almost any environment!

Water will be provided via large water totes to our primitive camp. In some sections of the course, you will live from the land but when learning you will need to provide your own meals, which is about 33 days’ worth. We recommend quick ready to eat field type meals for convenience such as our in house camp ready meals. These are the healthiest freeze dried meals on the market. MRE’s are suggested as well. View some of the available meals on our web store below: Sigma 3 Camp Foods Camp Ready Meals Military MRE’s Local groceries and supplies Walmart is within a short drive and several other stores as well. So you can get food locally very easily. We prefer you drive a vehicle to class, but if you fly you can ship your food here before arrival or purchase it locally. In some portions of the course we will procure our food from the land, but in most sections of the course you will need to provide your own food. If you plan to fly in, then you can ship the food to our location and we will keep it safe until you get here. The links above are our recommendations for camp food. Please help support Sigma 3 by purchasing your food and equipment through our store instead of other vendors. The funds are used to make the courses better and the school bigger for your benefit! Licenses The class will have a considerable amount of hunting and fishing in it and you will be required to purchase an Arkansas state hunting and fishing license. I would advise you to not get your license until you get here. They can be bought at numerous local stores. And you don’t need the annual license. Average cost or less. Call for more details if you have questions. Visit the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission website to learn more about licenses. Weapons If you have a favorite hunting rifle or concealed carry weapon that you would like to bring. It’s welcome at our camp! 4 – MAKE MONEY WITH SURVIVAL TRAINING Start your own Sigma 3 Training Center After you graduate this course, you will be a Level 1 Sigma 3 Instructor and this will enable you to teach weekend classes and our most popular course The Survival Standard.
