COVID-19 Operations

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, and before large scale herd immunity or vaccination, Idaho Rescue Training will continue to offer courses.  However, some changes will be made to decrease the possibility of transmission.


Participation will be limited to those willing and able to participate in the tasks decreasing the risk of transmission laid out by Idaho Rescue Training and NOLS.

We will follow many increased sanitation and distancing procedures, including but not limited to:

  • Changing the classroom layout to encourage distancing and limiting enrollment to a level to support the classroom size

  • Spending more time outside

  • Wearing gloves during scenarios

  • Wearing masks at all times

  • Available temperature checks

  • Using facilities without public access

  • Cleaning surfaces twice daily

  • Sick students will not be allowed to participate

  • Following all applicable local, state, and federal guidelines

All registration fees will be refunded if a class canceled due to a local outbreak.
