Welcome to Primal Survival Wilderness Training School. We were founded in Alaska, Grown in Arizona and currently located in Tacoma, WA! We are a veteran owned and operated training school that teaches a variety of wilderness education courses for all skill levels. We offer courses such as Wilderness First Aid, Wilderness Survival, Natural Navigation, and offer different survival scenario adventures. You will learn skills such as the priorities of survival, friction fire methods, debris shelters, natural navigation, & food harvesting. We also offer traditional First Aid/CPR courses with a 2 year certification from your choice of  American Red Cross or Emergency First Response. 


All these skills and more will allow you to travel vast distances, give you mental and physical confidence, and allow you to keep yourself and others safe while in the outdoors. If you know more, you can carry less, and the key to survive is to never give up, and never stop thinking.

Our classes are designed for people who already love enjoying the outdoors or want to get out more! Whether that means your a weekend hiker, avid hunter, outdoor professional, wanderlust wanderer, or any type of outdoorsman/woman! These classes are for you!

But love of the wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need - if only we had eyes to see."

10 C's of Survival

There are so many lists of possible survival items that can be assembled together to achieve the perfect Bug Out Bag.

From exploring the Southwest’s arid trails to trekking overseas, you’re likely to traverse desert terrain at some juncture in your hiking career. 


"I used Primal Survival for a team building event with my team members. Ben was prepared and he taught the team many valuable survival skills. Most importantly-he made it fun for a group of professionals to connect with Mother Nature!"


I will definitely take another course and I would recommend these courses to anyone who likes the outdoors!
