About the Sponsor

With Lake Superior nearby, and access to miles of trails and bike paths, the region provides ample opportunities to get into nature for rest and recreation, or to hone the skills picked up in the school's Outdoor Recreation Leadership and Management degree program. In addition to the outdoor program, the 4-year school offers a broad range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs to help students prepare for the future.

WMTC Student Handbook
You must be present and engaged for the entire course to be eligible for certification. Be prepared. Thoroughly read the student handbook as it provides detailed information about expectations—yours and ours—what to bring, wear, and how to study. Your instructor will provide and review the course syllabus with you at the start of the semester.
