We teach to the national standards for classroom time, distribution hours, and clinical observations.  Rather than meeting 2-3 times per week for several months, SOLO’s class is all day, every day for 3 weeks.  Our instructors are selected for their instructional ability and classroom presence in addition to their EMS experience.

SOLO Southeast Gear List

You should plan to have clothing appropriate to the season in which you will be taking the class, as you will spend a significant amount of time outside. The following list is to SUPPLEMENT the clothing you will be wearing. If you have trouble locating some of these items please call us as we have a limited amount for loan. This is a recommended gear list but is not required. SOLO does provide some gear for the course, but we highly encourage participants to use their own gear as much as possible during class to see how it will perform in the field under different medical scenarios.

  • Backpack to put everything in (medium to large)
  • Rain gear (tops and bottoms)
  • Layers of clothing (for splinting exercises and to keep yourself warm during scenarios)
  • Warm hat or sun hat
  • Water bottles (at least 1 qt/liter)
  • Some snacks
  • Pen and notepad
  • Wrist watch (cell phone is not sufficient)
  • Foot wear appropriate to the terrain (closed toes, no flip flops)
  • Insect repellent
