The Move United Membership Network is invited to apply for admission to a free 3-day NOLS Risk Management Training hosted online July 28-30, 2020 to support the training of their staff, volunteers, and community partners who teach disabled veterans.

With support from the Department of Veterans Affairs, Move United had planned to host risk management training with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) around the country in 2020, but due to circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will now be offering training online.

This course will provide outdoor administrators and program staff with a structured approach and tools to build a risk management plan appropriate for your organization. Content draws from lessons learned at NOLS over 50+ years of programming and experiences managing risk in wilderness environments around the world.

Priority Consideration:
