Wilderness First Aid
COURSE

Highly recommended for trip leaders, camp counselors, backcountry guides and professionals who work in remote areas.  Learn to deal with emergencies when resources are limited. 2-year certification.

About the Course

Learn to adapt first aid techniques to backcountry traumas with only the equipment on hand. Topics include patient assessment, bleeding control, injury care and prevention, evacuations, and long-term care.

A wilderness first aid course will take you well beyond traditional first aid. You'll learn the procedures and the principles behind them. We want you to know how body systems behave, not just how to memorize signs and symptoms. Whether you work or play in remote areas, our hands-on curriculum in wilderness medicine will prepare you to make good decisions in the field.

The course format is short lectures, labs, and realistic practice scenarios. Students will have the opportunity to master the core concepts and skills of wilderness medicine and the confidence to use it in a real setting. This 2-year certification is a must for anyone who recreates in the backcountry, or works in the outdoors.
