How do you treat hypothermia when help is hours away? What is the best way to create a splint for someone who has broken their leg on a hiking trip?

Going into the wilderness without having these skills is like travelling without a passport. It might work out, or it might not, but you will have little control over the outcome. By taking the Wilderness First Aid 50 you’ll not only have your passport but travel insurance too.

Who it’s for: For anyone who lives, works, or plays in remote areas and environments where medical attention is difficult to access.

What you’ll gain: The confidence and tools necessary to implement long-term care and stabilization until medical help arrives and for wilderness trips where easy evacuations are possible.

What you’ll learn:

  • Pre-trip planning and contingency planning
  • Prevention and assessment of common environmental illnesses and injuries
  • How to plan and improvise evacuation of patients with limited resources

Program Length: 50-Hours
