I spotted the following local survival-related training opportunities on Dabble.co (online marketplace “for fun & affordable classes in the community”) this morning:

Impress your friends and be self-reliant!

This is a must have skill for anyone seeking to be self-reliant!

This course will teach you not only how to build a fire that will start in just about any weather, but how to do it using nothing more than a few pieces of wood and some string. By the end of this course you will understand how to properly prep a fire, make a tinder birds nest, and most importantly how to spin out an ember and blow it into a raging fire.

Skills to be covered:

Come learn the amazing skill that is sure to impress anyone – yourself included! After all, you will have just created…FIRE!

At the time I type this, there are only 3 spots left.

Cost is only $30 to attend.

There’s also this class from Mr. Reed in early November:

From reading a topographical map to improvising a compass in the wild, this course will teach you what you need to know about wilderness navigation.

Each student will learn about the different types of compasses, the different types of topographical maps, and natural methods of finding direction.

Once again, cost is only $30 to attend.
