Do You Have:

  • a super-strong passion for wilderness medicine, and endless desire to learn more about it?

  • Once you're accepted and trained (an on-and-off process that typically takes at least a few months), both MEDIC and SOLO will be interested in hiring you to teach 2-day Wilderness First Aid certification classes (usually on weekends) on a part-time basis.
