Customized Staff Training

Target Your Most Important Resource

Staff are your most important resource and their time is limited. We will work with you to design a training program based on your priorities.

Our expertise encompasses a broad range of topics including: judgment and decision-making, emergency response, leadership, communication, and other skills.

Our instructors will come to you, or we will work with you to design a training that you can deliver yourself.

Students put their hands in for a team effort in route finding.


Bring NOLS to You

The 2-day NOLS Risk Management Training for Administrators will help you build or improve your organization's risk management practices. You and your team will learn a framework for designing risk management systems that meet the unique needs of your program.
