Conditions related to COVID-19 continue to evolve rapidly- Adventure Risk Management is monitoring these developments closely, and we are invested in providing the training you seek as soon as possible, with consideration to the current status of the pandemic and numerous logistical factors that must be aligned to provide any course. We will choose to offer our courses based on factors such as:
Risk levels & risk management
- Under any conditions, it is impossible to remove or control all risks within a wilderness medicine course- viral transmission (i.e. COVID-19) adds another significant factor to manage. A primary consideration will be current risk levels of this particular virus.
- Whether these risks can be reasonably mitigated using enhanced hygiene practices (and whether these practices will unacceptably alter the quality of course instruction and skills development).
- Impacts on the local communities where these courses are provided.
- Class site availability
- Enrollment levels
- Travel restrictions to and from the course
The conditions related to COVID-19 will not simply end at any given point in time- in fact, they will eventually diminish to a point where the risks become acceptable to you and Adventure Risk Management. We strongly encourage you to carefully consider these factors before choosing to enroll in a course. We will interpret your registration as an acknowledgment of these factors, and will then direct our efforts towards providing the course for which you and other students have registered.
We look forward to seeing you on course!
