SERE Training is not for the faint of heart! Tactical survival is an entirely different challenge than just surviving under normal conditions. When people seek to hurt you and it’s a must to escape and evade; you sure as hell don’t want it to be the first time you have ever done it. Training is key! You’ll always perform to your lowest level of training in any real life scenario.
Kidnapping is one of the biggest criminal enterprises in the world, and Americans are targets worldwide! In this program, you will understand what it is like to be kidnapped and interrogated for real. We will cover how to handle a variety of scenarios and tactical survival skills in both an urban and wilderness environment. The scary thing is that statistically a civilian is exponentially more likely to be kidnapped and killed, than a military member. Kidnapping is a multi-billion dollar business worldwide and this course will teach you the skills you need to know to survive in whatever hostile area you might find yourself.
This course will take a normal civilian and transform them into someone who capable of escaping illegal custody and disappearing back into a safe zone. When traveling you have to be aware of the tactics that criminals use, so that you don’t end up becoming a victim. We will teach you the counter tactics you can use to protect you and your family. These skills could be used in a SHTF scenario, being kidnapped, economic breakdown, being stuck in a hostile country, evading capture, natural disaster, and much more! This is not a course designed for military personnel, though all the information is pertinent to military operations as well. In this course, you will learn the tactics of special forces in a package every civilian can use! Do you think you have what it takes to make it through SERE?
The SERE class at sigma 3 is a great class for civilians to take to get the skills to survive a situation in which it is necessary to escape from captors, evade people trying to catch them, and survive through the whole experience and get back to safety. I could tell the instructors really knew the stuff they were teaching inside and out. I learned a lot of things that I hadn’t even considered, such as the psychological aspects of how to survive captivity and interrogation. In the last couple days of the class when we did the training exercise where we actually went through getting captured, interrogated, escaping, and evading were especially useful because it showed us what skills we needed to work on, and gave us a taste of what it might be like to be in a real SERE scenario.
My SERE course by Sigma 3 was a life changing experience. The instructors were world class and could not have been better. The scenarios prepared us for the test of a lifetime. I gained knowledge and skills to truly walk the walk. It could have not been better. I highly recommend this course and Sigma 3. Jon PuraVida Long
I recently attended the first Wilderness/Urban SERE course held in March 2015. Sigma 3 Owner, Rob Allen and his top notch instructor’s took us to the next level. I was prior military, with 11 years and one combat tour in Iraq. I also was full time law enforcement and defensive tactics instructor. The level of training tasked me greatly and enhanced my skill set well beyond my expectations. If you are traveling out of country, or just want a gut check, this course will teach skills that WILL save your life. This is what Rob and his cadre instill and thrive on.
I am an Army Veteran. The SERE Course with Sigma III prepped me not only for being kidnapped during vacationing, but prepped me for handling worst case scenarios even in America. What I took from this course will last forever, and forever help me teach my family life-preserving skills. My 10 year old niece can now pick hand-cuffs in under a minute, which helps the entire family sleep better, though I hope she never needs this skill. If I need to evade, resist, escape, or neutralize a captor, I now have the skills. Do not under estimate this power. If I need to live in or out of captivity within the wilderness, I now have the physiological, physical and emotional skills and experience to do so with confidence.
Shelter – Stealth survival shelters for someone on the move and in hiding.
Water – Primitive water procurement wit stealth. No fires. No modern tools.
Fire – Numerous methods for creating fire as well as hiding it.
Food – Stealthy primitive traps and light weight food procurement kits
The evasion section of the class will cover how to think like a tactical tracker, land navigation using primitive methods, counter tracking, improvised camo and stealth tactics, surveillance, & counter surveillance. We will cover in depth tactical tracking principles and the importance of stealthy movement for evasion. This is probably one of the most important parts of the course, because those that can’t be tracked or found, can’t be killed. Awareness is 90% of the game.
During this portion of the course, you will begin to start learning restraint escapes and how to deal with kidnappers. How the torturer mindset works and how you can manipulate your criminal captors. We will cover social engineering and human hacking skills to enable you to manipulate people to your will. The resistance phase of the course is the whole point of the class, nothing prepares your mind for capture better than the resistance phase. After this course you will fully understand why you can never allow yourself to be captured. In order to understand kidnappings, you must have truly experienced it, so you will never allow this to happen you or your family! You will learn how to deal with your interrogator, what to say, and how to deal with being captured.
The escape portion of the course will teach you to deploy the tactics we’ve taught you in a real life scenario. You’ll escape various types of restraints including: handcuffs, zip ties, duct tape, ropes, and much more! And once you learn how to escape, then you will put it to practice in the Urban FTX. The last two days will be an all day FTX where you will be interrogated, escape custody, and then be forced into an urban environment to avoid the tracker teams that will be pursuing you over a day and half. The interrogation phase is optional, though highly recommended. Most people enjoy the exercise, it’s a mind game that will teach you to function under extreme stress inoculation. You will avoid the trackers and then have to complete and entire series of missions in the urban jungle! Putting to use everything you’ve learned so far to escape and evade out of the city to a safe zone.
