Manage Risk on Wilderness Trips

You’re ready to go deeper into the outdoors—but it takes more than luck to get home safely. 

Risks can’t be eliminated from the wilderness, but you can learn to manage them. In this 2-day classroom course, you’ll learn to plan your adventures with risk management in mind.

When you start a trip with a plan, you can focus on having fun instead of managing unexpected problems. When you’re able to identify hazards, injuries are less likely. And if something goes wrong despite your preparation, having a plan sets you up for an effective response.

This course is relevant for outdoor enthusiasts, guides, and trip leaders of all experience levels, especially those who may venture beyond the reach of traditional emergency services (places with unreliable cell service, poorly maintained roads… or none at all).
