Bringing You the Best of NOLS
In addition to NOLS' regular course offerings, the school also provides custom courses and consulting services through NOLS Professional Training.We bring you the best of NOLS—the best instructors and the best teaching curriculum in the industry, taught in customized, made-to-order programs that fit your unique needs. NOLS Professional Training is recognized world-wide for its innovative teaching in areas like teamwork and leadership, skill development, risk management, and more.

What Makes Us Different
NOLS Professional Training delivers an education that will last a lifetime. We model many of our courses after the wilderness expedition, where lessons are immediate, lasting, and applicable to your life—no matter what you do. We've found that running any expedition successfully requires the same skills that are essential once you step out of the wilderness, including establishing goals, planning, efficiency and teamwork

Our Programs
Every client we work with is different, so every program we offer is different. What you can count on is that we will enhance your ability to lead, manage, work together and teach by employing proven techniques pioneered by NOLS.

Custom Courses
What you need is what you'll get. We mold the course curriculum so that you're getting the very best of NOLS in a way that makes you the very best at what you do. The leadership, teamwork and outdoor skills you learn here will transfer to real life, whether you're on top of a mountain summit, in a classroom, or in a business meeting.

Skills Seminars
Our skills seminars bring you NOLS expertise packed into an intensive seminar that focuses on one specific skill area. Climbing, sailing, skiing, hiking, caving, sea kayaking, river travel, horse packing…you name it, we teach it.

Risk Management Consulting
Through our risk management consulting services, you can learn from the best and get professional audits that will improve the way you handle the inherent hazards of taking people into remote and wild places.

Annual Wilderness Risk Management Conference
NOLS Professional Training is the lead sponsor of the annual Wilderness Risk Management Conference, an event that brings outdoor professionals together to work on the clarification, understanding and management of risks in the wilderness.


NOLS instructors like Jeffrey Post are the best in the industry—dynamic teachers with a passion for what they do.
