Arthur Carhart National Wilderness Training class "Wilderness Act of 1964"

This online course is required to be taken before attending the Northern Rockies Wilderness Skills Institute.  This is a free class, w hich includes reading short narratives, listening to audio, interactive graphics, and quizzes.  The purpose of The Wilderness Act of 1964 course is to acquanit you with the contents of this law and equip you to consider its impact in managing a wilderness area; this is foundational material relevant to everyone working in wilderness stewardship.  We have designed the sessions at the Wilderness Skills Institute assuming you have already taken this class and have learned this foundational material.  Feedback from past students has shown that most people prefer to take this class on their own before the full session, so that they can go at their own pace and have time to reflect on what they learned.  The average time it takes students is 2.5 hours.  You can stop and start the class anytime you want - you don't ahve to take it all at once.  Once at the Wilderness Skills Insittute, please be prepared to discuss what you learned from the class, what surprised you, and what was the most important thing you got from the curriculum.
