I am wanting to renew my "Wilderness" rating for my EMT-B cert. A local community college is going to offer the course with certifications through American Safety & Health Institute.

Does anyone have experience with ASHI?

My origional cert was through SOLO in NH, and I know and WMI.

IIRC, they've been around a long time, mostly doing industrial FA courses. I think the instructor and sylabus makes more of an impact than the organization hosting it or printing the certs...

Good luck!

Agreed - That's what concerns me a bit about the course - WMI and SOLO were the organizations that started the whole Wilderness Medicine using instructors who actually spent time in the field. Some of the newer orgranizations seem to be organizations trying to expand their product line.

But the price is right, and I have the time available, so I might just do it!
