Course Description:


Summary

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. Wilderness Medicine differs significantly from standard first aid courses and other training that are oriented toward urban environments. This course teaches how to manage medical emergencies when hospitals and rescue services may not be available for an extensive time period. We prepare students for emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments, and improvised equipment.

**If you are using this course to recertify a WMA WEMT it is your responsibility to let the sponsor know when registering, and to inform the instructor on the first day of class.**

Room and Board:


Lodging

Lodging includes the option to camp directly behind the classroom facility.  There is easy access to potable water and a shared "washhouse" with a toilet, sink, and one shower stall. 

 

 

Food

Campers and daily commuters will have access to a kitchen for food storage and meal preparation.  Refrigerators, stoves, cooking utensils, etc. are all available.  

Those who elect to pay the additional $50 will be provided with continental-style breakfast and prepared buffet-style lunch/dinner each day.  We can accommodate most dietary restrictions with advanced notice.
