Designing and teaching courses for educational institutions has been a strong component of Survival Educator's history. 

Central Washington University (73 College Credit Courses for 1514 students, between Jun, 1971 to Mar 1976). Adjunct Lecturer though Central Washington State College (CWSC), now Central Washington University, from June 1971 through March 1976. During this time, I developed 16 different courses, instructing a total of 73 classes for 216 credits to 1514 students. Over 1450 of these students participated in a field experience, lasting from one to three days. The majority of the students were school teachers who were learning how to incorporate basic survival and outdoor information into their respective school curriculums.
