Part Time Help Wanted

Advertising & Course Administration

Wilderness Medicine Instructor


Advertising & Course Administration


  1. Are you a social media guru?
  2. Do you enjoy advertising / word-spreading?
  3. Are you extremely detail-oriented?
  4. Are you looking for permanent, long-term part-time work -- not just a fill-gap until you have a different job or school begins, etc.?
  5. Do you have a kind heart and warm, friendly demeanor?


We're looking for someone to partner with on the admin side of MEDIC's growing course load.  If you answered "yes" to all questions above, please email matt (at) solowfa (d0t) com with a resume and a cover letter which illustrates how you are a great match with the questions above.  Thanks!

Update 5/25/17:  the application deadline has passed, and position filled.  Things change, and needs change over time, so please still feel free to reach out to us with your resume.



Duties start with taking on MEDIC's current word-spreading tasks and connections (facebook, Meetup, Craigslist, contacting / listing in specific likely-interested groups, newspaper calendar listings, etc.) and grow word-spreading from there including instagram and perhaps more.  Rough guess 3 to 5 devoted (not multi-tasked with other non-MEDIC things at same time) hours per week, with growth opportunity for more advertising as well as for email general administrative work.




  • Choose-your-own job title (within reason :)
  • Pay will start at Living Wage for one adult, with frequent opportunity for bonuses.
  • Enjoy work wherever you want, so long as you have an internet connection.




Wilderness Medicine Instructor

Do You Have:

  • a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) or higher certification, or other medical certification plus a desire to become a WFR?
  • a super-strong passion for wilderness medicine, and endless desire to learn more about it?
  • a sharp mind, and attention to detail?
  • extensive experience with outdoor adventures, disaster relief, or emergency medical care-giving?
  • the ability, warmth, patience, and thoughtfulness to work well with all kinds and ages of learners?
  • an always-upbeat attitude?
  • a good sense of humor?
  • punctuality, dependability, reliability, and loyalty as some of your core values?
  • weekend availability?
  • a desire and plan to live and stay in Virginia or surrounding states for many years to come?


If Yes:

  • MEDIC may be interested in training you (apprenticeship model, plus possibly SOLO Instructor Training School) to become a top-notch SOLO wilderness medicine instructor
  • Once you're accepted and trained (an on-and-off process that typically takes at least a few months), both MEDIC and SOLO will be interested in hiring you to teach 2-day Wilderness First Aid certification classes (usually on weekends) on a part-time basis.



  • Please email matt (at) solowfa (d0t) com with (1) a cover letter illustrating how you have what's listed in the "Do You Have" section above, and (2) your resume, including noting your GPA from the last educational institution you attended.
  • Set your email spam filter to welcome emails from: @solowfa (d0t) com


Thanks, hope to get to embark upon a long-term relationship working with you!
