PE 1625: Wilderness First Aid

Wilderness First Aid

This course focuses on essential first aid with an emphasis on backcountry and wilderness issues. Includes a certificate of completion in Wilderness First Aid, as well as certification in Standard First Aid and CPR. Patient assessment, body systems, equipment improvisation, trauma care, environmental medicine, toxins, backcountry medicine, and wilderness rescue are all covered. Designed for those who travel in small parties in the backcountry and who wish to be self-sufficient and well prepared, but equally useful for handling everyday medical emergencies.
