Sponsoring a course is a great way to offer a wilderness and remote medicine course at your location for your employees, members and the general public. Many Scout Troops, Search and Rescue teams, and outdoor organizations host courses at a location of their choosing across the East Coast throughout the year. Sponsoring a course is also a great way to earn revenue for your group or organization!
Each year many sponsors recognize the value of our enthusiastic and knowledgeable educators, up-to-date curriculum materials, numerous recertification opportunities and our full service approach to helping them run high quality training programs. Well over four thousand CWS alumni are providing emergency medical care across the globe.
When you sponsor a Center for Wilderness Safety course, you are working with a full-service organization. Our professional staff strive to support your course and give you and your students the best experience possible. We take customer service to heart! We require a minimum of 30 days lead time (preferably 45 or more) prior to a desired course start date. This allows time for participants to register.
