Duration and Content of Training:
Programs usually run 2 - 5 days. We can help you design the content and duration of your own event that will best meet your needs. Since safety and skill is of vital concern to you and us, we will recommend the most appropriate training for your teams once we receive some initial information from you.
Training Options (Five):
Option 1 – Indoor Seminars:
Duration: 1 hour to 8 hours – you choose. Two to four hours is the most popular format for indoor seminars. We will provide whatever training you need, in either an overview format or very detailed training, using slides, videos, overheads, handouts, equipment display (actual gear review of survival kits, clothing, boots, equipment, etc.), to enhance the learning experience. We recommended the indoor seminar format for those who have teams who work outdoors, but who are not necessarily exposed to remote, dangerous locations due to weather, terrain risks, etc (see Field Training for these exposures). These seminars are also great for those whose budgets are not currently sufficient enough to book field training. We believe that, “any quality training is better than none at all.”
Option 2 – Field Training:
Courses usually range from 2 - 5 days of field training (unless you book otherwise), depending upon the skills to be taught. We can combine varying elements of skill-sets during the training, to ensure multiple-facets of training are covered. Our extensive hands-on training will instill confidence in your employees ability to meet their basic needs during a backcountry emergency.
Option 3 – A combination of Options 1 & 2 – Indoor Seminars & Field Training:
This option provides both elements of indoor and field training to maximize the learning process for your teams.
Option 4 – Private Consulting (Individual or Groups):
You can also hire NWSOS-ITP on a retainer basis (call for details), to ensure that whenever/wherever your team needs training or a consultant for related work, they get it in short order. This ensures that new team members who require a certain amount of training, get it when they need it, rather than waiting for an “open-enrollment” course to be offered.

This not only includes training, but also includes assisting your team evaluate safety risks and develop safety protocol and standards, to helping you establish rescue preplanning and procedures, survival kits, first aid kits, clothing, footwear and equipment evaluations/recommendations, etc. Everyone who ventures into the field to work or recreate faces many types of risks. One of our specialties is working with you on doing everything possible to minimize those risks to your employees.
