It will teach the principles of “When Help is Delayed” and “Mountaineering Skills”. This course is available to all registered Boy Scouts, Ventures, and all Leaders if prerequisites are met. Participant must attend both days for certification. Please bring

(This course is a BSA Policy Requirement. As of 2008, the requirement is for at least one leader in each group, not just unit, must have this certification for high adventure camps. So, if your unit has a trek that will be broken into multiple groups you will need one leader per group trained.)
