Courses are a great networking tool for anyone in the Outdoor Industries!
We understand that every penny for Education & Training counts. Currently, it is difficult to send members, from any group, to take advantage of remote courses.
Our Team operates with a simple concept, “We Got This”, if course days at your location need split into morning and evening blocks, late start days or courses into the late evening, meeting YOUR needs is our Number One priority.
Our instructors come from all aspects of the Rescue Services & Outdoor Education Spectrum. Fire Fighting, Emergency Medical Services, International Care in Remote and Austere Conditions, Law Enforcement, Search & Rescue, Safety Industry, Outdoor Leadership and Recreational Explorers and Military. While we offer the Nationally Recognized programs from Wilderness Medical Associates International, each course is custom, to fit the needs of our clients.
If you are an Outdoor Leader looking for a Wilderness First Aid Course, a Search & Rescue Team Leader in need of a Wilderness Advanced First Aid Course or Rural Police Chief or County Sheriff looking for a Wilderness First Responder Course, we have got you covered.
While course foundations remain the same, every one of our programs are custom tailored to fit the needs of our Clients.
Our courses begin with a review of your needs, history, expectations, and goals. We like to find out your past experiences, to draw in, and build on, knowledge possessed by your team.
Our Motto of “Be The One” refers to the feeling of empowerment given to our students, after a course. It also is about a mindset, of confidence and understanding, that in a back country emergency or a remote industrial setting, their education and dedication will permit them to “Be The One”, to make a difference!
