Wilderness First Responder    CU Boulder                         Spring 2013 

Class starts Monday January 28, 2013 and meets from 4 pm - 8 pm weekly, during the Spring 2013 semester. Classes will be held at Rembradt Yard Event Center 1301 Spruce St. Boulder, CO 80302. You may have seen e-mails about the class starting at 3 pm - as the result of several students having class conflicts and wanting to participate, we have shifted the syllabus around. Now actual instruction will be from 4-8 pm however the instructor will be available in the classroom starting at 3 pm each class session for any students that may have questions or need help with the course prior to class starting. If you are interested in the class and still have scheduling conflicts please e-mail us to see what types of accomodations can be worked out to allow you to still participate and complete the course.

Also, please note the first class of the semester will start on Monday January 28, 2013. This will allow students taking classes at CU to get situated with their other classes and will provide a smoother flow of our syllabus throughout the semester. Please let us know if you have any questions.

A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the CU Hiking Club to help support their programs and services.

Class is limited so sign up early.
