This looks like both an excellent an intriguing program covering a wide variety of wilderness medicine topics.

"16 Hours of Class I CME will be chosen from the following topics:

Several of these topics have been touched upon in the past on here related to kiting, diving and other types of marine accidents. It is good stuff to know in short. Have to like their approach to seminar scheduling, wind on = kiting, wind off = learning!
