Excellent. I've done it through NOLS twice. The programs where they do an in depth scenario, in rough outdoor conditions, are the best. Builds confidence.

Great combination of experiential learning and classroom teaching. The teachers were open to suggestions and questions the students had. 50/50 with classroom and hands on learning.
