Field Site Training: The field site training programs are immersion programs, which means for the entire training you will live in the woods and spend every day actively learning and doing. You will be evaluated, given feedback, and tested by hands-on, oral, and written tests by instructors. The evaluations are based on in the field exercises, test scores, and oral answers. Guides who successfully meet all training requirements will receive a certificate of completion.
Academic 4 day: Student Guides are tested in class written and orally. You must receive a score of 70 or better to receive a certificate of completion. Attendance, participation, and proficiency in map and compass skills are part of the score.
Student Guide test scores and pertinent information are maintained in our main office.

While efforts are made by our staff to ensure the student Guides success, we reserve the right to academically dismiss student Guides who are not meeting minimum standards for participation and safety.
If for any reason you are not satisfied with the training you are free to leave, but you will not receive a certificate or return of fees for the training course.
