Customized Staff Training
Target Your Most Important Resource

Staff are your most important resource and their time is limited. It is important to target your staff training to get the greatest benefit in the time you have. NOLS consultants work with you to design a training program based on your current program priorities.


NOLS’ expertise encompasses a broad range of competencies including: judgment and decision-making, emergency procedures, technical skills, leadership and communication. You choose the most appropriate training format:


On-site training:
After identifying your organizations priorities and working together to create relevant scenarios, our instructors travel to you and use an interactive classroom setting to teach your staff.
Train the trainer:
A consultant works with you to design an interactive classroom training that you then facilitate with your staff.

"There is no doubt in my mind that the NOLS staff training was a big part of a very succesful summer here. The process of thinking through our approach to risk management and then clearly communicating both expectations and ways of achieving those expectations to our staff through the training was critical to creating a positive change in the way our staff view and manage risk on trip."
