Info
COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.
The seminar applies effective decision making methods to real climb and scramble incidents to improve group response when these emergencies occur. Based on findings and subsequent research following the Sharkfin Tower climbing incident, along with other real incident scenarios, the course discusses group dynamics and participation and engagement techniques proven effective in addressing emergency situations. Volunteers will support two preparatory sessions and two presentation sessions. The preparatory sessions will finalize the instructional material – the scenarios and specific questions that the seminar participants will discuss. At the seminar, volunteers will guide discussion at break-out tables to help the small group discussion stay focused on the learning objectives. Volunteers will receive seminar credit.
