Space on our courses is limited. We recommend enrolling 45 days prior to the start of your course.

Review, practice and stay on top of your skills. Our scenario-based approach provides the opportunity to test your judgement and leadership in realistic situations. The hybrid on-line format allows you to fit your course into a weekend and work through the curriculum at your own pace, so that you can focus on hands-on elements during your two days on site.

Experienced instructors who are both active trip leaders and medical professionals will pass on the latest curriculum updates. This course includes CPR and epinephrine administration certifications. Earn college credit for your recert through the University of Utah, not to mention 18 hours of EMT CEUs.

Highlights include timed evacuation decision making drills, practicing your SOAP reports over the radio, and scenarios with non-traditional rescuer to patient ratios, such as 5:3. 

4 hours of prep on-line | 8am to 10pm on Saturday | 8am to 5pm on Sunday

 
 
I can’t say enough good things about Dave in particular and the course in general. Dave has such a gift for teaching and making the material understandable, approachable and interesting! Instead of feeling like rote memorization, Dave’s approach helped me to understand the why behind treatments, protocols and evacuation guidelines in a way that made those things make sense.

I love how you chose to bring in learning goals and objectives at the start of the course, and how you wove in leadership and decision making throughout. Both instructors were clear, professional, well organized, and well prepared.
