Online Wilderness Safety Training Courses

 

We provide several of our training courses online and through a combined online and in person delivery model.

In today's hectic world we understand that between life's commitments and limited vacation time it is often hard to enroll on a full time course that runs over several days. The solution?

Conduct a portion of your course online as your free time allows. Generally you will have the ability to review the theoretical portions of courses in the comfort of your own home. Once you have completed the online portion students contact our offices to book the in person portion of the course. The biggest advantage to this delivery model is the fact that it usually reduces the amount of time that must be booked off from work or family responsibilities to obtain your required certification.

Other advantages include:

  • More comfortable learning environment: Commercials that feature online students studying in their pajamas only skims the surface of one of the benefits of online education: no physical class sessions. Students listen to lectures and complete assignments sent to them electronically, with no need to fight traffic, leave work early for class, or miss important family time.

  • Convenience and flexibility: Online courses give students the opportunity to plan study time around the rest of their day, instead of the other way around. Students can study and work at their convenience. Course material is always accessible online, making special library trips unnecessary. All of these benefits help students balance work and family commitments with their education.

  • More interaction and greater ability to concentrate: While contradictory evidence about the rate of online student participation versus participation in traditional courses exists, one thing remains certain: Online courses offer shy or more reticent students the opportunity to participate in class discussions more easily than face-to-face class sessions. Some students even report better concentration in online classes due to the lack of classroom activity.

  • Career advancement: Students can take online courses while working, while in-between jobs, or while taking time to raise a family. This academic work will explain any discontinuity or gaps in a resume as well. Also, earning a certification can show ambitiousness to prospective employers and a desire to remain informed and prepared for new challenges.

  • Avoid commuting: During snowstorms, colleges may cancel classes to avoid putting commuting students at risk of dangerous driving conditions. Rather than miss important class sessions, students in online courses can always “attend” by participating in discussion boards or chat sessions, turning in their work on time, and watching lectures or reading materials. Many students also find substantial savings on fuel costs with no commute for classes.
