Viristar delivered a high quality training and I would recommend it to any outdoor program. The trainers were experienced and dynamic. The information presented was relevant to the participants, and there were great hands-on activities to make the learning come alive. I was particularly impressed with the ability of the trainers to adapt the delivery to best suit the audience. Highly recommended.
We have been extremely pleased with the outdoor safety-related trainings provided by Jeff Baierlein, backed by his extensive risk management experience and outdoor industry knowledge. We look forward to having Jeff return to continue to provide continued world-class trainings for our outdoor program.
Before you plan and organize outdoor activities, you should attend Viristar’s Risk Management course…in the course, you’ll learn essential know-how and how to reduce the risk of accidents. I therefore highly recommend the Risk Management course from Viristar.
An extremely useful, important and informative course…gave me the confidence to manage a recent overseas trips and act as an advisor to my peers who are planning various programs across the school. A very enjoyable and worthwhile program.
The Risk Assessment workshop was an excellent platform for us as an organization to learn and adapt best practices in the field of risk management…we really appreciate the “big picture” approach to risk management which gives us the flexibility to adjust our own systems based on the environment that we are working on.
Very informative. The course material 'Risk Management for Outdoor Programs' is a comprehensive guide to safety and risk management. I would recommend this training for any educational leaders in outdoor learning.
Great insight into risk management—took a lot away to implement back at my workplace. Very well run. Great course!
The scope of risk management material and topics was helpful. The case studies and stories really help to bring the theory into focus and communicate the importance of best practices. Jeff's many years of first-hand experience are invaluable resources to anyone desiring to be a high quality adventure/back country provider.
I would expect a combination of in the field experience coupled with intellectual rigor from Viristar. I have spent many hours on Risk Management with Jeff Baierlein and when I want to talk through a tough question I always want to speak with Jeff.
Viristar's risk management training is very high quality and should become a must have training for any outdoor organization seeking to ensure excellence in risk management for their programs. Jeff Baierlein the facilitator is very professional and is excellent in creating scenarios that give clear reasoning on how to deal with emergency situations.
An insightful look into risk domains and tools. Well-structured and expertly facilitated...a great way to gain multiple perspectives and share knowledge and ideas.
The Risk Management for Outdoor Programs course is a must for all outdoor recreation executives and leadership.
