Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education - Event Information

Event Name:Wilderness Risk Management with NOLS and REI @ Seattle, WA
Event Type(s):Risk Management

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. In this 2-day, classroom-based course, you'll learn what it takes to venture responsibly into the outdoors (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.).

  • Learn to identify and manage wilderness risks from the leader in wilderness education
  • Learn trip planning principles and how to identify life-threatening outdoor hazards
  • Outdoor leadership and decision-making strategies
  • Emergency planning and self assessment tools included
