Wilderness Instructor Development Process | JMB Podcast Episode 98

For episode 98 of the JMB podcast, we discuss the process of developing wilderness instructors and guides. We outline the following steps to the process:

  • Take a course and get the Journeyman certification
  • Take a medical class, first aid or wilderness first responder
  • Take and pass the test to become a Registered Maine Guide
  • Go on a bunch of trips to learn the waterways and fine-tune your systems
  • Do a practicum, where you live with a certain level of (low) technology for 2-3 weeks to lock it in and make it part of you

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
