Wilderness First Aid
This wilderness first aid course is designed for scouts and scout leaders, outdoor enthusiasts, and anyone who works or spends time in remote environments. This is a 16-hour course that teaches advanced skills to be used in emergencies when help from professional first responders may be far away. This American Red Cross course is based on the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines, this course aligns with OSHA’s Best Practices for Workplace First Aid Training Programs, and meets the guidelines set up by the American Camping Association.
Our wilderness first aid program is two demanding days of lecture, discussion, hands-on, and scenario-based practice that will increase your ability to do the right thing for a patient. As much of class time as possible is spent outdoors in hands-on practice and scenarios.
You must be at least 14 years old and hold a current CPR/AED certification (see below on how we can help you with this CPR/AED certification). This wilderness first aid certification is good for 2 years and you will receive your digital certification card from The American Red Cross upon your successful completion of this program.
The cost of our course is $200 per person. You and your organization may qualify for a group or scouting program discount. The CPR/AED skill verification (if the student needs this required certification) is $35 per person in addition to the course fee. Room and board are not included in course fees. Courses are booked online with EventBrite as "FREE" but payment is required before the first day of the course.
