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.

Course Location: All courses will be held at our headquarters in Green River, Utah. Our headquarters is located 1/4 mile east of the Green River Bridge, behind the Comfort Inn. You should plan to arrive in Green River the evening before the course begins. Classes will start at 8:00 a.m. on the first day. Green River is located 180 miles southeast of Salt Lake City and 110 miles west of Grand Junction, CO.
Room and Board:
Lodging: There are several motels in the area. The Holiday Inn Express (435-564-4439), Comfort Inn (435-564-3300) and Motel 6 (435-564-3436) are located just in front of our headquarters.
Campgrounds: There are three campgrounds in Green River. The Green River State Park (435-564-3633) located about one mile away, KOA Campground (435-564-3633) located about one mile away, and the United Campground (435-564-8195) located across from our headquarters. There is also free camping along the Green River, and at Swasey's Beach (about 12 miles away).
We are not trying to compete with the local campgrounds, but there are some camping spots behind our warehouse. You will have access to our outside restrooms and outside showers (if weather is warm enough). However, our kitchen area and other facilities will be off limits. The camping fee is $20. We will have trips coming and going, so you will need to keep your area picked up.
