This 24-day course combines focused leadership training with a backpacking expedition and exposure to specific Alaska wilderness travel skills. Special focus will be put on crossing fast-moving, glacially-fed Alaskan rivers, and potentially crossing bare glaciers. The Alaska instructor course will build on the outdoor and education experience you already have, while allowing you to fine-tune your teaching and leadership skills. Successful completion of this course will prepare you to work wilderness backpacking courses for NOLS.
