I hope all is well and you are enjoying the fall colors. One more major update this month, however it does not affect most of you.
I have finally made the decision to suspend the Online Recertification courses. Something I have been considering for some time.
Online recert is preventing growth in the other areas of Base Med by taking away time and resources. The layman courses are proving to be much more promising but it needs more attention. Right now I am restructuring the OSO course, and we are designing several other specialized courses. That is and has always been my main dream for Base Med. And it’s this that I think will have the most impact within the outdoor community.
Online recert requires more funding and resources than I currently have available. Right now, I need to pay the lawyers, I want a more robust curriculum review panel, I need to pay for CE accreditation, pay for strategic partnerships, and more. All this can be done in time as Base Med grows but to force it now is not working and may even give online recert a bad start. Plus, being a “disruptor” is rather challenging alone. ;)
As far as how long this suspension will last, it depends on a few things. It may be 6 months or 1 year. Hopefully no more. And when it re-launches...watch out world! ;) I am more than happy to discuss my decision in depth to those who have more questions. Just reach out. I am here.
Other than that, I am excited for us to make Base Medical the go to outdoor safety resource. I will be reaching out to some individuals here soon. Have a great November!
