    Just finished the RMAP course and am still buzzing from the excitement of the action packed week. In addition to reviewing many skills I already had; I walked away with many more to add to my remote medicine tool box. The instructors and course content are excellent. THANK YOU remote medical!

    If you are looking for a class that is different from the typical medical courses available then look no further. Regardless of your certification, experience, or job field this class is a great change up to typical medical courses offered. This class covers a wide spectrum of medicine that is applicable in any environment. Depending on your skill level some of the material may be review however there is plenty of information and tools that will add to any medical provider’s knowledge base. Many of the labs are done outside. Diablo Washington is truly a unique place with mysterious beauty in a location that distances itself from population. Internet is available and cell phone reception was found 15 minutes down the mountain which is perfect if you are looking for a break. I recommend leaving electronic devices and shutting your cell phone off. The facility is modern and beautiful with an accommodating staff.

    The instructors had a wide ranging background of experience and created an excellent learning environment that was professional and fun. The amount of networking that one can accomplish in a single week is incredible. The class was full of knowledgeable students from all walks of medicine from different areas of the US and abroad. This class specializes in creating a learning environment that challenges you to think outside your normal comfort zone and consider the application of medicine when the advance life support is not going to be a deployable option.

    This class is one of a kind experience. Do not hesitate; step out into the north cascades with some world class remote medical providers and gain an edge in your medical skills.

    Great course, jam packed. Really enjoyed the wilderness setting. Learned a lot from networking with many people from different backgrounds and really liked the hands on approach, spending time out side.

    I work as a paramedic in a rural system and signed up for this course to further my education. I was very pleased with the course. There were lots of outdoor scenarios which involved hands on training. I really liked how large the scope of practice was, it forced me to brush up on procedures that I’m not able to do in my state. I’d recommend this course to people who want to receive further education and are interested in the longer term care. My only gripe with the class was that it was too large. This class would be better if there was a limited amount of students and more improvising had to be done. Otherwise a great course. I was inspired being around other paramedics with so much more knowledge and experience than me.

    I had a great experience. RMI instructors are amazing. I took a lot away from it and looking forward to putting the skills obtained into practice.

    I thought the biggest asset of the class were the instructors… All experienced remote providers and from a variety of environments with a true passion for what they are teaching!

    Great class! I really enjoyed learning about Remote Medicine. The instructors were very knowledgable and conveyed that they are very passionate about their work. I definitely have a new found respect for the healthcare professionals that perform rescue operations and work in remote areas. I would recommend this class to my fellow RN’s if you are interested in Remote Medicine. Just beware… You don’t have hospital resources to fall back on and you have to think outside the box.

    In spite of the rain, the location made it very enjoyable. The accommodations were very nice, and the schedule was not unreasonable at all.
    I just wish the course were longer, but that’s just because I enjoyed it. The instructors are very well informed and enthusiastic about what they teach.
    Finally, I appreciate the fact that nothing is “blown off” for simulation sake. If you want to carry them out, get to carrying…

    The RMI staff is extremely knowable and organized. The RMAP course is a great focused course for any advanced provider looking to expand their wilderness medicine knowledge. The cohesion between the group was an added bonus. Great class all around.

    What an incredible experience in an amazing setting in Washington! The instructors were top-notch and know their material. Presentation of everything was solid and followed by live scenarios. As a family physician this was my first experience with providing services without all the bells and whistles. Cannot wait for the longer course!

    :

    This RMAP course was challenging and informative. My background is more WFR than clinical so the exposure to equipment and techniques was great. Tyler, Mitch and Andrew are all experienced and knowledgeable instructors that look at the participants experiences as an integral part of the learning process.
    Thanks for a great course.

    This was a great course! There is a vast amount of knowledge that the instructors provide, and also you get such a diverse group of students that there is even more knowledge to gain on a peer level as well as from the instructors. As a paramedic I have a tendency to get in to the “hospital right around the corner” mentality, this course helps you get out of that mind set. I would definitely recommend this course. Also the location in the North Cascades is beautiful.

    I just finished the RMAP class in the Cascades and could not be happier. This class is awesome and benefits ALS providers at every level. If you are looking for some dull, clinical class with death by powerpoint, than this class IS NOT for you.
    This class exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. Taught by Andrew, Mitch and Tyler, the course was crammed full of techniques, assessment skills, and clinical knowledge that barely fit into the allotted time frame. The instructors were knowledgeable and the scenarios were tough, intense, and appropriate. It is one thing to sit in a classroom and be taught theory, but putting it into action is what set this course apart from most others. We were expected to be able to work in teams at a moments notice to rescue people in the woods and lakes! IF practice makes perfect, than we were darn near perfect!
    Even as a seasoned medic with more than 20 years in EMS, I learned new material and technique that will expand my knowledge of physiology and wilderness medicine. I highly approve of the RMI way of teaching and will recommend their classes to every agency that I work with here in NM. Thanks to all of the RMI staff for your hard work and dedication towards making EMS education more realistic, intense and beneficial to every level provider.

    I attended this class in 11/09 and the instruction was excellent, facilities that were used for classroom and living were top notch. Class had a strong presence of highly trained professionals from all walks, but we blended nicely and I learned a little from each person.
    A lot of this class is outside, as it should be so prepare yourself for extreme weather… rain/cold… which made this life like.
    Andy has a talent for instruction… I was impressed.

    This class is definitely worth taking if you plan to spend any extended periods of time in the backcountry. After completing the intensive 10 day course I feel confident that I will be able to help with most outdoor health emergencies. What’s more, the instructors are very enthusiastic and make the class very enjoyable. Gold star.

    I am an instructor for this course, it is usually taught with one Remote Area Paramedic and a Physician. My favorite aspect of the course is the collective learning that occurs with the wealth of experience among the students and instructional staff. The constant comment we hear about this course is that it is the only real ALS course out there compared to other wilderness “ALS” courses. We have had great feedback from this course, and conducted already in several countries. For any wilderness focused physician or out-of-hospital care provider, this is a very useful course, and a lot of CME.
