3 day AWLS course culminating in AWLS certification. Focused on a wide variety of clinical issues one may come across in the wilderness. Trains you to be more equipped for your own explorations or to help lead groups as a medical doctor. Various groups offer the training at various locations around the country. Other, similar options are the Wilderness upgrade for medical professionals (WUMP) with NOLS.

AWLS Black Mountain, NC

From: Laura Kromann

I also did a 3 day AWLS course culminating in AWLS certification sponsored by Appalachian Center for Wilderness Medicine. I had a great experience and feel more prepared on my own explorations and with groups. Very hands on course: lots of practical patient encounters. Worked with a wonderful group of people. Learned a ton. Would def recommend it.
