Wilderness First Aider

 

CPR & first aid for outdoor recreation
 
Not the standard urban first aid training. The Wilderness First Aider course teaches participants how to respond to possible life-threatening emergencies and serious medical problems  commonly encountered in the wilderness environment. The course practicals and scenarios are entirely wilderness oriented and many of the sessions take place outdoors.

This course is an ideal introduction to the topic of wilderness first aid for people who travel or work in the outdoors. We will equip you with the skills to deal with common problems and emergencies you may encounter while adventuring or exploring.
