ECSI Logo Register Now

These two day courses will instill the knowledge, skill, and confidence to help others when definitive medical care is over an hour away. They are designed for outdoor professionals and recreationalists alike. These fast paced courses will be driven by skills practice, fueled by fun, and led by an outdoor educator who has been teaching and guiding since 2002.

Scenario based learning will move students’ focus from looking for the “right” answer toward a thought process to find and execute the best solution when faced with undefined situations in the field.
