Why Sponsor?

Our goal is to increase access to advanced medical training for Nepali guides and staff!

By offering the course at the lowest rate possible to Nepali and Indian Citizens already, we are bringing this course to within reach of more Nepali staff.  Especially with limited income the last 2.5 years, this course is still beyond the reach of many Nepali.


If Idaho Rescue Training is able to bring this course fee lower with your sponsorship, we will be able to increase the number of Nepali guides that are able to take this training.

Our goal is to bring the cost to $375 for up to 10 Nepali or Indian guides.  We are looking for Sponsorships of $150 (Tier 1), $300 (Tier 2), or in-kind or trade sponsorships that will directly reduce Idaho Rescue Training's cost.

Sponsorship Details

  • All sponsors will have their logos and links shared through the Idaho Rescue Training website and social media.

  • Tier 2 Sponsors will have their logos and information shared roughly twice as often and be larger on the website.

  • A class picture will be provided with any provided flag or banner from sponsors.

Idaho Rescue Training is not registered as a non-profit company.  Paid invoices will be provided.
