You must complete the Part 1 online component of our two-part hybrid WFR course in order to attend the Part 2 practical session.
This is an in-person course and subject to protocols designed to minimize the transmission of COVID-19 during the course. You must agree to abide by these protocols and be fully vaccinated to attend the course.
This hybrid course is sponsored by Puget Sound Outdoors. The 5-day practical session is held on the UPS campus in Thompson Hall (Building F on the map), room 193 on the first floor. Fields and some wooded areas offer ample outdoor space within walking distance of classrooms for practice simulations. More complicated and interesting simulation sites are within a short drive at Point Defiance State Park and Owen Beach. The university does not provide transportation to off-campus simulation sites; be prepared to carpool.
Nearest Airport: Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac)
Lodging: Several motel and AirBNB options are available off-campus in Tacoma. Camping on campus or in vehicles is not permitted unless the vehicle is a full RV with its own sanitary systems and locking doors.
Meals: The dining hall is open to UPS students; public students must pack and bring lunch and snacks.
Parking: Parking is free in lot P4 off Union Avenue.
