What’s in the Bear Awareness Training Course?
Our Bear Awareness Safety Training course is perfect for those who work, live, or explore areas where bears live. This course covers bear behavior, what to do in a confrontation, basic defense techniques, and more.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for a final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a practical exam to review basic near awareness knowledge.
Why do I need bear awareness training?
Bear populations are rebounding because of various conservation efforts. As a result, bear territories are expanding, and the chances of encountering a bear in the wild are increasing. The chances of a bear killing you are low. However, the chances of the bear being euthanized after too many human encounters is much higher. As most bear attacks are preventable, it is important to know what steps you should take to avoid an encounter, as well as what you should do to increase the likeliness of both you and the bear surviving.
