As a returning GI with Post 9/11 benefits I earned, I knew I wasn’t going to go to a college or University. I started researching guide schools and found Swan Mountain. I worked with Pat and his staff to map out taking essentially most of the courses offered. I have to say this school understands the VA process, and I was impressed with Pat’s command of the procedures necessary. I was exposed to many great skill sets. I strongly recommend Swan Mountain Wilderness Guide School.
