Risk Management
At The Action Potential @ CMHA we embrace the physical and emotional challenge of the natural environment to attain our learning objectives. The Action Potential @ CMHA courses are not easy and involve the pursuit of adventurous activities in rugged terrain in which there are real dangers. Risk, both physical and emotional, is an important element of a The Action Potential @ CMHA education. The uncertainty posed by nature combined with the judgments and abilities of students and staff leads to risk. Risk management, in this context, is the ability to make a decision when the outcome is uncertain and relies on our ability to perceive and quantify the risks we face. Risk management is taught and practiced on every course. The Action Potential @ CMHA is committed to promoting the physical and emotional well-being of all students.
Students transport their own gear; prepare their own meals; and are expected to care for themselves in weather conditions that can be extreme. Each student plays an important role in the success of a The Action Potential @ CMHA course. Good physical conditioning and a positive mental attitude are essential.
Our courses are conducted in the outdoors when appropriate. As a result of this teaching environment medical incidents can occur. The majority of medical incidents that might occur are simple and often treated in the field. A more serious incident, such as a fracture, will require evacuation to a medical facility.
It is important you understand that there are risks. Some adventure programs say that they can guarantee your safety. The Action Potential @ CMHA does not. The risk of injury, even serious injury or death, is always present in the outdoor environment. Indeed, much of the value of a The Action Potential @ CMHA course lies in learning how to identify hazards and adapt behavior to strive to avoid injury or illness.

The Action Potential @ CMHA Promotion
Occasionally, The Action Potential @ CMHA uses students’ names, photos, and other images in promotional material, videos, and press releases. By registering for the course you imply consent to use any photographs or images in future promotions, videos, or press releases.
