Wilderness First-Aid

imagesThis is a condensed version of the two day wilderness first aid class that is centered around the most common injuries and medical issues that may arise while in the wilderness.  Unlike many other wilderness first aid classes, we take this class a step further in providing practical exercises that not only cover the diagnosing and treating of patents, but also the evacuation if necessary.  Students will need to bring their first aid kit, along with other items that they would normally take with them on a day trip, for example, trekking poles, rain gear, survival kit, water, etc  The class will be 8 hours in length and consist of 5 hours of classroom and 3 hours of practical exercises.
