Those of you who have listened to the last couple of Survivalist Prepper shows know we’ve been working on getting a 2 day survival medicine course put together in Colorado in October. Kevin Reiter from WildSafety.com will be doing the bulk of the training, but in the process of setting everything up he has added a few guest trainers.
The great thing about this is that it gives us the ability to make this course more “preppercentric” (if that’s a word). With the guest trainers, this 2 day course will include not just survival first aid, but natural hazzard awareness, CQB (Close Quarters Battle) room clearing, HAM radio basics and more.

SPP212 PrepperMed Colorado
In this weeks podcast Kevin and I went into quite a bit of detail about what this course will include. There is a list of topics and guests below, but I highly suggest you listen to the show. We went into much more detail about how exciting, economical and educational Colorado PrepperMed will be.
Here are some of the details we have so far for the PrepperMed course. As I said earlier, make sure and sign up for email updates. There will be quite a few more updates in the coming weeks, including the venue and pricing.
Where: Ramada Denver Downtown,1150 East Colfax Ave., Denver, CO 80218 (We have 10 rooms blocked out at a discounted rate – details will be sent after you register)
Cost: This course will be NO MORE than $200. Kevin has set this up to be a not for profit course. This means the final cost will be determined by how many people sign up. There will also be a discount for Survivalist Prepper Academy members.
Date: The training will be October 7th and 8th (Saturday and Sunday) and will be a combination of indoor and outdoor training.
Class Size: We want to keep this course to around 15 to 20 people. The reason for this is because we want people to get everything they possibly can out of the training. A smaller group will allow everyone to interact and ask the questions they want to ask.
Day 1 Training:
(8 or 9AM until …?)
