The AWLS Hybrid course is an exciting new format for us. Following completion of Online Modules to cover the didactic portion of the AWLS curriculum, students will meet in person for the practical skills component. Following an opportunity to review questions from the modules, we will dive into practical skills and wilderness victim scenarios. This means the two days in the desert will be spent almost entirely outside doing hands-on practical skills.
Less time in class means more time to play and explore the high desert! World-class hiking, climbing, and mountain biking can be found in and around Phoenix, and following your AWLS course, you will be prepared for anything the desert has to throw at you!
With the Advanced Wilderness Life Support certification students earn 24.5 hours of Category 1 CME, as well as Wilderness Medical Society Fellowship credit.
