Normal first aid courses assume that help is just a phone call away — but what do you do when that’s not true?
This course covers everything you need to know about one of your most critical resources — from prepping ahead of time to what to do in an emergency.
Learn to sharpen a variety of knives and edged tools. Designed for normal people who want to keep their blades in good shape.
“A cool headed site… emerging as the voice of a movement.”
“The Prepared runs more in the scouting-for-adults vein rather than towards stockpiling for the zombie apocalypse.”
“To prep like a pro, you need to learn from The Prepared.”
“The Prepared offer[s] useful, non-alarmist advice on disaster preparedness.”
Prepping is about anything that could majorly disrupt your life, which might be as simple as a car accident or sudden job loss. Natural disasters are another biggie, as are things like pandemics, economic crashes, civil unrest, and worse. Here’s more.
These courses are meant to apply to normal life as much as possible, but they also explain what to do in the really bad scenarios.
Courses are broken into lessons (eg. “Dehydration”) and their topics (eg. “Symptoms” or “Treatment”). You move through at your own pace and in whatever order you want. Most topics have a main video with additional pictures and text beneath.
Once you finish a course, you’ll know enough to get you through the vast majority of emergency scenarios you’ll face and you will be better prepared than 99% of people around you.
You’d be shocked at how much dangerously-wrong “advice” is taught online. Skip the rambling amateurs, extremist hermits, and ineffective lessons that don’t actually make you safer.
Even if you can find good free needles in that massive haystack, it will take days of hunting just to come close to these high-quality, professionally-taught courses — and you won’t get the ‘whole package’ of a structured, memorable flow built specifically for modern preppers.
In-person learning is great, especially for getting dynamic feedback as you practice your skills. And for hanging out with other people. Here’s a list of local training centers. Many of our video instructors also offer in-person lessons. But physical classes are often multiple times more expensive than these online courses, require you to travel, and you can’t go at your own pace.
You might want to take an online course so you can warm up at your own pace before your limited and expensive in-person time. Maybe you want to try the cheaper online version first before deciding if you want to go to a more advanced physical course. Or maybe you’ve taken an in-person course and want the digital version as a refresher you can go back to over the years.
Whether you’re totally new or just want a refresher, we’re confident you’ll be a successful student.
