Wilderness First Aid (2 Days)
Come spend two days of extremely hands-on training in wilderness first aid (WFA) with us during our nationally recognized certification course. WFA is different from standard first aid in that:
-It can require extended care (24hrs+)
-It can require you to improvise and create life-saving gear from your camping equipment and/ or surroundings
-It can require you to take exposure measures (care for the patient's needs in terms of warmth and cooling) into account
-Training is very hands-on and involves many realistic-seeming simulations
-Students perform a much higher level of medical intervention (i.e. students will learn to set certain dislocated joints, close wounds, and more)
Upon completion of this two day/16+ hour course students earn a nationally accepted certification from the American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI) - the world's largest private EMS training provider.
