If you play outside with friends and want to know the basics of how to take care of someone if they get hurt, this course is for you. It gives you the knowledge to deal with many situations, but does not cover any particular topic in great detail. If you're looking to travel more remotely where you might have to take care of someone for a day or more or are planning on leading groups, the 40-hour or 80-hour course is recommended.

Have a group? We can work with you to create a wilderness first aid course for your group for most dates. Minimum 6 participants for the above stated price.
