What do you do when there is no 911? Wilderness First Aid is a hands-on, 16-hour course designed to help prepare you for the unexpected. The course meets the needs of trip leaders, guides, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts and anyone working or playing in remote locations. It will introduce you to treating injuries and providing extended care for individuals who become ill in remote locations far from advanced medical care. Wilderness First Aid is a two-year certification through SOLO Wilderness Medical School, the industry leader in back-country and wilderness medicine.
Topics covered range from preparation and prevention to assessment and treatment of the most common medical emergencies that we see in the wild. Classroom lecture and discussion are supplemented by hands-on practical work. Realistic scenarios are an important part of the course as the emphasis is on “doing.”
