This is 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.

Accommodation.
We have an accommodation option at checkout for this course. For $75 you can stay three nights in one of our prospector tents and use our onsite outdoor kitchen pavilion and hot showers. – Subject to availablility.
