Description

Class Experience

The student will learn skills for survival and acquire knowledge to apply when situations arise that may call for advanced problem solving skills. They will be able to problem solve using different scenarios to encourage thinking and understanding.   
I am a proud, former member of a United States Marine Corps Sniper Team, Second Battalion, Third Marine Division, stationed out of KMCAS, Hawaii.  I received extensive training in the military.  I attended training such as:  jungle survival, cold weather, desert survival and as a combat medic and EMT for that team.    I served during the Gulf Wars and have extensive experience in the areas I teach.  After my time with the Marines, I entered civilian Law Enforcement in Jacksonville Florida. Today, I share the knowledge I was given with others.    
This is an ongoing class and as such students can join at any point.  I will not assign homework but may offer further resources for continued independent learning after class ends. 
Paper and pencil for class to take notes
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed by in-class interactions and participation and optional further independent research.  
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class will deal with potentially scary topics such as wilderness scenarios, disasters, and being lost.  However, graphic or gory images, over-the-top illustrations, and/or detailed specifics will not be part of the curriculum.  We will be discussing ways to start fires with tools and without tools as a class discussion.  We will not actually physically start a fire but parents may want to talk with their student after this class regarding safety.  We are also discussing water treatment and will emphasize seeking parent help should they wish to try the technique to purify water.  I will always send the student to the parent for supervision in areas where safety is a concern. 
Parents should be aware we will discuss topics related to wilderness survival and that I will present all of these topics in as positive a manner as possible and in the spirit of survival...and overcoming obstacles.  
Sources used will come from information learned in the military during survival training and combat readiness courses as well as personal experience.
