Instructor Training 2016

Sirius is welcoming applications for our 2016 Instructor Training.

The Sirius instructor training is an intensive 8-day program that takes place once a year in the spring. In 2016, it will take place March 23-30.

We look for candidates who fit the Sirius profile and qualifications and who have solid skills and extensive experience in the following three areas:

  1. working or traveling in remote regions
  2. teaching
  3. paramedical field

Pre-requisite for the instructor training: Wilderness First Responder certification from Sirius Wilderness Medicine.

All applicants to the instructor training program undergo an extensive interview process with the Sirius team in November to determine whether they fit the Sirius profile. For more information please see our Instructor Job Opportunities page.
