KNOWLEDGE AND HOW TO RESPOND TO REMOTE EMERGENCIES IN THE WILDERNESS

This fun and interactive 20-hour wilderness first-aid course is a must for anyone working or playing in the wilderness more than an hour away from medical aid. Also for those that currently hold a 40 hour wilderness first aid certification from a recognized first aid provider, you can re-certify 40 hour advanced wilderness first aid by taking this course. 

The 20 hour wilderness first aid course course includes trip planning and preparation, adult, child and infant CPR (Level ‘C’), obstructed airway procedures, artificial respiration, use of an Automated External Defibrillator, prevention of disease transmission and wound management. Recognition and first-aid treatment for drowning/partial drowning, heart attack and stroke, allergic reactions and anaphylactic shock, hypothermia, heat stroke, bone, muscle and joint injuries, poisons, burns, diabetic emergencies, head and spine injuries, evacuation, transportation and extended care will also be covered.
 

Participants spend the majority of the course doing hands-on first aid and participating in first-aid scenarios. By practicing with scenarios, students gain confidence, learn to improvise and react in emergency situations.
