Check in is at 7:45 am on the first day of the course. Course days run from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Attendance is required at all scheduled classes. Scenarios and practice sessions will take place both inside and outside. Bring outdoor clothing appropriate for lying on the potentially wet, snowy and/or cold ground playing the role of both rescuer and patient. Frequently stage (moulage) blood and make-up are used to emphasize the reality of a scenario. The classroom environment generally lends itself to a pair of comfy shoes or slippers and a camp chair.
Please come equipped with a light daypack, waterproof top and bottoms, light hiking boots and layers well suited for spending time outside.
