Wilderness Instructors Course
Outdoor Education Designation
Beginner level courses, instructed by fellow students. Apprentice Instructors have taken Outdoor Trip Leadership, may have gone on the trip as a student, but have not instructed a course before. Lead Instructors have taken Outdoor Trip Leadership, have a current Wilderness First Responder, and have previous experience as an Apprentice.
Activity specific training and practice for students wanting to lead courses in areas they have not previously been trained in. For example a student might have taken a backpacking OTL but want to lead a canoeing or climbing course. Courses are taught by the Outdoor Education Coordinator and by a qualified student Teaching Assistant(s).

A week-long field training held over Spring Break that is mandatory for those interested in leading Earlham Outdoor Education trips such as August Wilderness and AWPE courses. Students gain an introduction to the field of outdoor education and have the opportunity to demonstrate basic knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for a successful outdoor education course including facilitation and presentation skills, specific outdoor skill acquisition and proper trip planning and preparation.
East Fork, NC
The Wilderness Instructors Course is offered each May as part of the Outdoor Education May Term. The course is split into two units. The first unit is a Wilderness First Aid and Emergency Care unit offered on campus which leads to a Wilderness First Responder Certification. The second unit is an Advanced Field Practicum that typically focuses on canoeing skills in an expeditionary setting. Course readings will focus on advanced leadership and technical skills. Emphasizing opportunities for practice and feedback, students will travel in the backcountry learning and teaching outdoor skills such as navigation, camp craft, group facilitation, judgement, risk assessment, and leadership.
Wilderness First Responder
Created to provide outdoor leaders with the knowledge needed to deal with crises in remote settings, WFR is an 80-hour certification course that meets all DOT national standards for First Responders with additional protocols for patient assessment, extended care, and wilderness rescue. This course is taught by SOLO, a world leader in Wilderness Medicine.
Outdoor Education
Since 1971, Earlham has been at the forefront of training and developing outdoor leaders and educators with a unique, liberal arts approach to outdoor and experiential education.

The Outdoor Education designation is designed to prepare students for a leadership role in the professional field of outdoor education.
Developing Leaders
Through a combination of course work, trainings, and experiential practice in the field, the program emphasizes the development of specific knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to lead groups and teach in outdoor associated settings.

Students in Outdoor Education at Earlham have gone on to work in the field for Outward Bound, the National Outdoor Leadership School, and government agencies such as the National Park Service. Others have built careers in K-12 schooling, environmental education, or social work.
