Online training model a big success
Viristar has been offering Risk Management for Outdoor Programs trainings around the world for years, but this year brought something new: online-only courses. The coronavirus pandemic spurred us to shift our in-person intensive training model—multiple days together, in a classroom—to a multi-week e-learning program.
How did it go? It’s been a great success. Moving to a virtual platform with video-conference sessions spread out over weeks, interspersed with individual time for readings, writing assignments and other activities, has allowed us to go deeper into the content than ever before. And we’ve added new components that help students better than ever before transfer the learning to their own professional situation.
But let’s hear from participants themselves. Here are comments from a selection of individuals who completed our online classes this fall:
We're proud of the hard-working participants in Viristar's Risk Management for Outdoor Programs online course. They learned a lot, had fun, and are making their experiential and outdoor programs better and safer than ever before.
Congratulations to all!
