We are pleased to endorse the Larimer County Parks Ranger Excellence School

I would like to take this opportunity to voice my support and endorsement for the Ranger Excellence School training provided by The Larimer County Colorado Department of Natural Resources.   This one week training program is packed with subject matter essential for today’s ranger professionals serving in an ever-challenging field.  The cost is nominal for what the attendee will receive.   This kind of training is not widely available and I would encourage department administrators to take advantage of this unique opportunity for their rangers.

You are invited to attend the Ranger Excellence School training hosted by the Larimer County Department of Natural Resources in Loveland, Colorado.  The training conference is at the Ranch–Larimer County’s Events Center. Cost per participant is $200 for the week.  Loveland is located along the beautiful front range of Colorado and is with in an hour drive of the Denver International Airport.  There are multiple hotels and restaurants situated within a few miles of the Ranch.  The popular Fort Collins Old Town, Colorado State University, Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park are all a short drive from the Ranch.

The Ranger Excellence School is a unique week long training opportunity geared toward providing a high level of training and networking for park rangers, conservation officers and park police and others working in the parks, recreation, open space and conservation field.  The training conference believes in the importance of highly trained and professional officers who are skilled in a variety of disciplines.  The Ranger Excellence School promotes the importance of serving the public and a high level of customer service.   Highly skilled instructors from the region are invited to the training conference to teach their area of expertise.

As a participant, you can pick from multiple sessions that typically run in four hour blocks in the mornings and afternoons from Monday through Thursday.  Sessions will include Tactical Decision Making, Character Building, Driving Skills, Wilderness First Aid and First Responder, Hunting and Fishing Contacts, Self Defense and more.  You can get certified in OC spray and baton.  During the lunch hour we will also have demonstrations from our local SWAT, K9 and Helicopter Medevac crew.  On Friday participants will have the opportunity to put all of their training together in multiple realistic scenarios that will help them apply their training toward the job they do for their agency.  A catered barbeque and graduation will follow the scenarios on Friday.
