Whether you have an active outdoor lifestyle, participate in remote location activities like hunting, trekking, camping, climbing or just want to be prepared in the event of natural disasters, “man-made” emergencies or civil upheaval we can help you acquire the skills necessary to help you survive

Based in Arizona, USA, Life Skills Academy (AZ) is staffed by trained professionals experienced in survival, search and rescue, self-rescue, radio and GPS skills, rescue training as well as firearms training for remote locations (where such skill sets would be needed).

At Innovative Systems (Life Skills Academy) we provide real world comprehensive and continuous training courses in all types of survival, rescue and armed self-defence skills.

We are dedicated to providing high quality LIFE SKILLS training in a structured, informal and friendly environment to people at all levels of ability, with or without previous training or experience. The safety and survival of our students in a real-life situation is our top priority. Our training “IS” our reputation!

Our full survival cache of courses includes Medical, First Aid Advanced Medical Techniques, (not First Aid that is commonly taught elsewhere), Advanced Radio and GPS use, Map & Compass Reading Skills, Survival and Self Defence Firearms training.

Especially popular is our Medical Skills Course where students can learn “in the field” treatment of life threatening or serious injuries that may be suffered during recreational pursuits This could make all the difference in cases of injury where help is many miles and maybe hours away.

Not a lot of people know that Arizona countryside has a very diverse environment to train and also survive in as we have mountains, forest and desert on our doorstep. In Arizona we also have various creatures whose bite can prove lethal. An injury or bite that is “simple” in the city can be a major setback or even life threatening in a remote location

  3. Learning survival skills is best done before you really need them – it’s too late after that.
