The FM101 application will request information describing your family’s outdoor interests, experience, and why you want to take this class.
Each applicant (including children) will need to create an account on our website and apply for the program individually. Parents will likely create their child's account for them. Each person must have a unique email address to create an account (if you use gmail, creating a unique address if very simple). Contact us if you need assistance with this step.
Adults typically enroll as a student with their currently enrolled child. They may serve as an assistant if they can demonstrate competency with FM101 skills. These skills include: knots (overhand, rewoven figure 8, figure 8 on a bight, double fisherman, prusik, girth hitch, clove hitch and alpine butterfly), slingshot belay, rappelling with the use of autoblock, Fixed line of travel and Running belay. One way to meet this requirement is to have participated as a student or instructor in a Mazama BCEP, ICS, AR, or ASI class within the last 3 years. Please contact the coordinator with questions.
