This certification course will run two consecutive 8 hour days. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early each day. Portions of this course may take place outside, on trail, or in wooded areas, so please come prepared with a small backpack, sun screen, rain jacket, etc. or anything you feel you may need to remain comfortable. It is recommended bringing a sack lunch. A refrigerator is available in our room but a microwave is not.
