Good luck. I've never heard where you can do survival training outside of the military environment.

There's plenty of places. Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, ect
Just none in Laos.

I'm sure the trekking guides at Phou Khao Kwai (about 90 km from Vientiane) could help you out, they've been living in the jungle/rainforest for years and one of my guests recently went out with them for a few days and slept in a tent, ate "jungle food" etc.
You can ring and ask Boun Sanong on 020 220 8286 (inside Laos) +856 20 220 8286 (outside Laos). He's our contact at Ban Na, the village which organises the treks. I don't know if he speaks English but I'm sure they'll be someone there who does.
