Exclusive to OAC AIARE classes, we provide two bonus classes on using CalTopo mapping software and reading a NWS forecast, and membership in the OAC AIARE Alumni Mentoring FB group. Our classes are also limited to 8 students with 2 instructors, so you'll get plenty of attention from your instructor(s)
