Mandatory safety course in nature

At step 4 you are to complete a 7-hour safety course in a nature area. In this course you will learn how to prepare for a drive, how to make good decisions while driving, and emergency procedure and first aid in the event of an accident.

The course begins with 2 hours of training in preparing for a drive. Of the remaining 5 hours, at least 3 hours are to consist of independent and continuous driving on and off a track, in part while towing a loaded sledge.
