Wilderness First Aid Course Book Now Wilderness First Responder Course

The Wilderness First Responder course is designed with the outdoor professional in mind. It focuses on developing first aid skills for treating patients outside the normal “ golden hour” of first response. This 6 day (72hr) Wilderness First Aid class is the industry standard for guide services and outdoor education programs. This course includes lessons in anatomy and physiology. When responders understand how the body works then they can better understand what it needs during traumatic, environmental and medical emergencies. The course is based on the protocols set by the Wilderness Medical Society and instruction encourages the students ability to think through body systems in an effort to determine the best response - whatever the situation.
