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:
The course is held on site at Camp Kandalore in Algonquin Highlands. Students will live in cabins with electricity with washrooms and showers close by. Camping on site is unavailable. Meals will be held in the dining hall and food provided by a chef that accommodates any food restrictions.
