Why Enroll in THIS Class with THIS Instructor?


Your actual hands-on capability and confidence to render emergency medical care depends on:

  1. Curriculum quality
  2. Instructor quality
  3. Class not getting cancelled


1)  Top-Quality, Evidence-Based, State-of-the-Art Curriculum

  • SOLO is the oldest continuously-operating school of wilderness medicine on the planet
    • Legitimacy:  run by a physician.  Very few other schools can claim that.  Some consult a physician; it's not the same as having an experienced physician own and run the school.
    • State-of-the-art:  having a staff of nearly 20 full-time employees (not counting instructors) enables SOLO to continuously develop state-of-the-art, evidence-based curriculum updates.


2)  Highly-Acclaimed, Top-Notch Instructor Matt Rosefsky

  • In addition to, above and beyond being a Wilderness EMT, Matt has SOLO's highest certification:  Geo Medic.
    • As compared to many other instructors, Matt's being a Geo Medic greatly increases his ability to give you the best possible answers to your questions, both during and forever after class.
  • Experience:  has taught ~2,500 students.
  • Read this instructor's course reviews to see what the anonymous feedback surveys reveal.
    • The instructor often hears sad reports of other organizations' classes. 
      • Sometimes it's a case of you get what you pay for (if you find a much cheaper course).
      • Some other times you pay more for a different course, and don't get what you pay for.


3)  MEDIC Has Never Cancelled an Open-Enrollment Class*

  • Matt Rosefsky (teaching since 2007) deeply cares about the people he educates, respects the significant amount time they have set aside to take the class, and wants to have as many people out there as possible to have this training -- making disaster and wilderness areas safer for all.
    • *Matt has taught classes with as few as 2 students!  He respects and honors your commitment to attend, with his commitment not to cancel unless you tell him you'd like to transfer to another date.


4)  10% of Proceeds of Many of MEDIC's Courses Go To Local Nonprofit Community Organizations

  • How many other organizations out there care this much about community and helping out, building meaningful cash donations into the organization's basic functioning?
