Wilderness First Aid Certification Course

Wilderness first aid is different from standard first aid in that; it can require extended care (24hrs+), it can require you to improvise and form gear from your camping equipment and.or surroundings, and you must take exposure measures (care for the patient's needs in terms of warmth and cooling), training is hands on, and students learn to improvise their own medical gear from their surroundings, and students perform a much higher level of medical intervention- (i.e. students will learn to set certain dislocated joints, close wounds, and more)

Our two day/16+ hour course is a nationally accepted certification course fro the American Safety & Health Institute- the world's largest private EMS training provider. 

Learn techniques such as;

*Closing and packing wounds
*Splinting injured limbs
*Checking for spinal injuries
*Identifying and treating environmental exposure
*Medical Emergencies
*Insect bites
*Treating burns
*Much More!
