Training Courses

BOSS Training courses offer guides, trip leaders, and other wilderness-based professionals the chance to learn specific skills to help them succeed at their jobs. In addition to the behind-the-scenes Outdoor Educator course, BOSS hosts two medical training courses in Boulder, Utah in the spring of even years. NOTE: The next WFR courses at BOSS will be held in May, 2014. Please contact us if you would like to be informed when the dates are set.

BOSS is considered by many to be the premier school for wilderness survival skills. Much of our success comes from our course curriculae and our staff development program. Over the years, we've developed core philosophies for what we teach, how we teach it, and why. The Outdoor Educator course is our only course that teaches qualified participants the "how and why" components, giving you a more intimate look at our program operations. If you are an outdoor guide or hope to have a career in the outdoor education industry, this is an invaluable course to consider.

As an outfitter, BOSS's staff are required to maintain standard wilderness medical training certifications, and BOSS has teamed up with the Wilderness Medicine Institute of NOLS to offer pre-season Wilderness First Responder certification classes. These courses are open to anyone interested in learning wilderness medical techniques.
