Still working on the East Bay location. As soon as I have that locked down I will post a date. It will more than likely be at the end of the year. I recommend Camp Tamarancho, great course setup. We will have follow on classes to bring the 2day course to the next level, and that's what we might use the East Bay location for (this year).

June class is filling up. Still room in the September class. We are the only group out there doing full Land Nav courses. A plotted course using UTM 8digit grid coordinates. Navigating your way with a protractor, map, and a lensatic Military Cammenga or Suunto compass. Don't wait until the course is full.

We're utilizing Army training facilities or ROTC programs. The only location we have a class at this year is Camp Tamarancho in Marin. We should be offering another location at the beginning of the year in the East Bay (Dublin area). I will reach out to some of my contacts for Monterey area.

I will be teaching a Tactical Combat Casualty Care (NAEMT) course in the Monterey area soon. Additional courses will be held in South SF. Maybe check out our Big Sur over night trips too.

Thanks for the interest. PM or call 415-342-4646 for any additional questions.

Would love to, but logistically not working out at this time. If you have a big group I'm sure we could work something out. Thanks for the interest!

Hello,

I took the Wilderness First Aid course last year on the Calguns discount tip, and it was a great class. Would definitely like to get in on this, but afraid have not trolled CG in a while and can't do November's offering. I went to your website and signed up for the mailer to track class schedules(hopefully) for future offerings. Discounted or not, if the WFA class was any indication, I'm sure any of the classes/expeditions you guys run are fun and informative.

The Land Nav schedule is done for the year, next years schedule will be out soon. We will put out a blast email to previous clients and the schedule will be posted on Calguns too.

I'm glad to hear that you took something home from the Wilderness First Aid course, and I believe you'll enjoy the Land Navigation too.

Thanks

-Rob
