School Motto: “Semper Paratus” meaning Always Prepared
School Philosophy: Perception is Reality!
Instructors: A complete list of our Feature Instructor Resumes is listed on the website. We have Survival TV personalities, and some of the most hardcore survival, tactical, and medical instructors on the planet. We only choose from the best of the best, compare our resumes with our competitions and then decide if the competition stacks up to our Elite Instructor Cadre!
Class Sizes: Some of the biggest name schools in the country will fill courses of upwards of 30-200 people with only a few instructors. Do your research before buying. Our courses never exceed 15-20 and we have approximately a 1:10 instructor to student ratio so that you will get the time you need to mentor you through some of these skills. There is very little classroom time and our courses are almost entirely hands on training in the field! We try to keep the training fun and exciting and you will never be bored at one of our training events!
Items Required: It varies according to the class, but very little equipment is needed to attend our courses. We believe you should get the training first and then decide what you need based on your training and specific environmental needs. The Recommended Items list is a general list of items, 90% of the items listed are not needed to attend classes. Its just the equipment we prefer. If you have questions about what you need, don’t hesitate to Contact Us.
SIGMA 3’s Name: A lot of students ask us where we got the name SIGMA 3. SIGMA is greek for the letter S, and S3 stands for Scout Snipe Survive. This totally encompasses the skills and mindset that we teach and thought it a fitting name for the school. The Sigma symbol that looks like an X, is actually the greek SIGMA symbols mirrored on themselves.
Discounts: Usually discounts are only given to people that are on very tight budgets or for small groups. Contact us if you think you might qualify for a discount. We try to work with everyone and if you legitimately can’t afford training then we will work with you to make sure that you get that training. We now have payment plans available for all our students. To setup a payment plan or group/family discount, then contact us today for details.
*We offer special discounts to military veterans. Contact us for more info on getting a military discount.
Pricing: Cost varies according to location but our pricing list for all classes can be found on our Training Schedule!
Children: Children 12 years and up are allowed at most of our courses. We prefer that a parent attend with the minor but if the parent absolutely can’t attend then we will work with you to make sure your child gets some world class training. Certain courses such as SERE and Urban E&E are 18 and up only. Contact us if you have any questions about our child policies. Contact Us
Refunds: Feature or specialty courses taught by outside instructors will have no refunds available because of the minimum payment requirements that SIGMA 3 has with our feature instructors. If you cancel then it makes it that much harder for SIGMA 3 to meet its minimum overhead expenditures for these expensive instructors, especially if you cancel last minute. But we offer a credit for any course you cancel or miss up to 3 years from the date of the class. So you can re-apply that credit to any class that we offer for up to 3 years. All other standard courses you sign up for will have the option to take a full refund, minus a deposit for cancellation of at least 30%. We prefer that people cancelling just transfer their credit to another course. Contact us if you have questions regarding our refund policy.
