Guide to Private Courses
1. Guesstimate the number of participants
Different courses have different minimum and maximum numbers, so check the relevant course Different courses have different minimum and maximum numbers, be sure to check the relevant course description for details. For large groups, additional instructors are available.
2. Pick your date
During busy seasons (spring, summer or early winter) it’s good to have a backup date in case we can’t provide an instructor for your first choice. Please note: as soon as dates are agreed upon, our Cancellation Policy goes into effect.
3. At this point, get in touch
Fill out a form below, or give us a call to request a detailed estimate.
4. Book a classroom
We don’t need anything fancy – just a private space where participants can all be seated at tables, and for wilderness medical courses, a quiet, close-by outdoor space. In addition, we need a screen/projector or TV/screen/projector with HDMI, and either a whiteboard or flipchart.
5. Determine who requires rental gear
We can provide (depending on what is required per the course description):
- PFDs (lifejackets)
- Goretex drysuits
- Ice rescue suits
- Wetsuits (Eastern Canada only)
- Harnesses (Type 3 or 5)

7. Connect with our Instructor
The instructor will touch base by phone prior to the course to introduce themselves and review your goals, logistics, and possible training sites. The morning of the course, they’ll need access to the room about 45 minutes early to set up the course materials.
8. Organize Payment
We will invoice you as soon as the course is over. We can take POs in advance (if required) and accept Visa, MasterCard, cheques or EFTs. Terms are 30 days (following the data course). Overdue balances are charged interest at 2% per month or 24% per annum.
9. Sit back, relax
…and count all the money you’ve saved for the very best training, delivered right to your own backyard.
