Hello, so as far as course yeah REI offers many but in my neck of the
woods UC santa cruz offers through their outdoor ed program many
courses, they can be found at
Also the Tahoe Rim Trail association offers many classes geared for
these subjects, they can be reached at
Also in the spring I would take one of Ned Tibbets snow classes. Hope
this helps

Subject: [pct-l] Getting ready for the PCT

 I live in Oakland CA and I would like to take my 14 year old son next
spring. One of the things I would like to do before we go is to take a map
reading class and first aid wilderness or other. Can anyone suggest some
places in the Oakland area to take these classes.
