Course Description:

An entry-level course designed for professionals working in significantly remote settings for days or weeks. 

Wilderness Advanced First Aid is comprehensive medical training designed for remote professionals or wilderness leaders who venture into remote and challenging environments.

We prepare students for emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments, and improvised equipment.
