Praise for Nature Reliance School Courses
Craig is a knowledgeable instructor who clearly communicates with students and puts them at ease during the learning portion but also knows how to raise the intensity of the class to mimic real scenarios. He shares his experiences, encourages students to learn from each other, and willingly answers every possible question you can think up. There are no gimmicks in his methodology; everything is based on the necessary tools, skills, and mindset to keep yourself alive.
I highly recommend Craig Caudill and his programs at Nature Reliance School. Craig teaches from a lifetime of outdoor training and experience, and does so in an accessible manner that plays to the strengths and interests of students. He has no agenda: just a sincere wish to help others relate to the natural world. and gain the skill to thrive within it. He shares his knowledge generously, holding nothing back. Anyone having the opportunity to attend a training with him – and, better yet, to then get out in the woods and continue practicing the skills he teaches – will benefit from the experience.
