This is a practical course designed for individuals leading groups into the outdoors and for those participating in remote excursions. This course provides participants with an in-depth look into wilderness first aid, with an emphasis on practical skills, decision making and dealing with environmental conditions. 

This course has become a standard for outdoor professionals who work in a wilderness setting. Course content extends far beyond urban-based first aid programs to include elements inherent in working on remote sites beyond the reach of Emergency Medical Services.

In order to earn this certification, participants need CPR-C as a minimum. We include CPR training as part of the course content. Written test and hands-on scenarios required to pass the course.
