Wilderness First Aid 

3 Day Course 

This course trains participants to provide care to the sick and injured in remote settings and is appropriate for those working in, or traveling to, remote areas where immediate emergency medical services are difficult to obtain.


There are three levels of Wilderness First Aid skills training that range from basic to advanced levels. The focus of the course is to adapt First Aid skills as needed, based on availability of supplies, the environment, and additional factors encountered in a remote setting. This course is intended to compliment wilderness survival training and does not replace it.
