Wilderness First Aid.
Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. With an ASHI Wilderness First Aid class, first aid providers in a remote outdoor setting will be better prepared to respond when faced with limited resources, longer times to care for someone, and decisions about when and how fast to evacuate an ill or injured person. This comprehensive 16-hour wilderness first aid course meets or exceeds the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines, 2017 Edition.
Wilderness First Aid is available for groups of 5 or more. 10 students is our cut off point for a single instructor. 10 or more students requires an additional instructor, and will incur an additional fee. The course is not available for open enrollment at this time.
The Wilderness First Aid course is completed in two consecutive 8 hour days. Classroom training may be the clients site, or one that we choose. Outdoor practical training may be suggested by client, or we will find the ideal location in your general area.
One Day in classroom, and one day out of doors for practical work in the field. Covering wilderness and remote first aid from a basic understanding of emergency response in an outdoor setting to specific techniques and considerations for a wide range of injuries and illnesses.
