Manage Risk on Wilderness Trips
A lot of work goes into planning and executing a great outdoor adventure. As you go further afield, you need to rely on more than luck to get back home. Risks can’t be eliminated from the wilderness, but they can be managed. In this 2-day, classroom course, you’ll learn to plan your adventures with risk management in mind (hint: it’s more than first aid skills!).
A NOLS instructor will teach skills and lead activities on trip planning, identifying life-threatening hazards, outdoor leadership and decision-making, emergency response, and how to make the most of post-trip learning opportunities.
This course is appropriate for all experience levels, and is especially relevant for outdoor enthusiasts, guides, or trip leaders who may venture beyond the reach of traditional emergency services (places with unreliable cell service, poorly maintained roads… or none at all, etc.).
