Adventure Risk Management is currently offering wilderness medicine courses utilizing a number of strategies designed to reduce the risks of COVID-19. We take these conditions quite seriously, and endeavor to manage these risks to the extent reasonably possible. These strategies include:
- Smaller class sizes
- Face mask requirement during course
- Physical distancing whenever feasible
- Outdoor instruction (when feasible)
- Pre-course health screening of participants
- Daily temperature monitoring
- Numerous bathroom and handwashing stations
- Limited dorm room habitation
- Class and dorm rooms sanitized prior to course
- Daily sanitizing of class and dorms (by participants)
- Enhanced equipment cleaning practices
It must be understood that the very nature of emergency medicine training of any kind does require proximity to other persons in order to gain competence in skills such as patient assessment, obtaining vital signs, and a wide range of treatments. Enhanced practices will be implemented throughout our courses to mitigate the risks of viral transmission, balanced against the reality of building the skills necessary to provide good patient care.
We strongly encourage you to carefully consider these factors before choosing to enroll in a course, and we are happy to answer and questions you might have. 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. All course registrations will be subject to the Registration, Cancellation and Transfer Policy.
We look forward to seeing you on course!
