DPT--Take a Class

If the lazy days of summer are giving you some free time, why not use this extra time to take a class? Summer is a great time to spend a few hours, a few days, or maybe even a few weeks brushing up on some old skills or learning something new that will help you become even more prepared than you already are. Here are some classes going on in my local area:
  • CPR/First Aid (great to know in an emergency situation)
  • Yoga (a very good basis for your physical fitness routine)
  • Hunter's Education (certification is now required for younger hunters in our state)
  • HAM Radio (will lead to HAM certification so you can legally use a radio)
  • Safe Boating (a good skill to know if you ever plan to be on the water)
  • Motorcycle Endorsement class (an excellent way to learn how to ride skillfully)
  • Reloading class (how to make your own ammo--always a good skill to know)
  • Advanced Sewing (who of these days you may need to make your own clothes or at least want to be able to modify your gear)
  • Wild Edibles in Urban Areas (how to find food in the most unlikely of places)
As you can see, this is just a random assortment of the classes that are currently available. Take a look around your local area, determine what some of the skills are that you would like to learn or that would come in handy when TSHTF, and sign up today!
