Our Goal: To provide the most effective training in map interpretation and land navigation for the outdoor enthusiast and professional alike.

We accomplish our mission through hands-on instruction and practical field experiences.  Our interactive programs have been tested in the classroom and field for over 15 years. We use up-to-date equipment and teaching techniques to ensure students not only understand the concepts but can apply them in diverse situations.

We provide training in topics such as:

  • GPS Navigation
  • Compass Skills
  • Wilderness First Aid
  • Map Interpretation
  • Managing the Lost Person Incident
