REI hosts NOLS instructors to deliver the industry standard in wilderness medicine certification.

Upon completion, you will be able to conduct a thorough physical exam, obtain a patient history, assess vital signs, provide emergency care in the wilderness, and make crucial evacuation decisions. Scenarios and practice sessions will take place both indoors and outside. Stage (moulage) blood and make-up are used to enhance the realism of a scenario. Class is held daily from 8 am - 5 pm with an hour break for lunch; a 4-hour evening, outdoor mock rescue is also part of the curriculum. Attendance is required at all classes.
