Class Description

This comprehensive training program will give you a 2-year Wilderness First Aid certification through the American Red Cross. Participants are required to hold a valid CPR/AED certification, but for added convenience, a CPR/AED certification skills check can be arranged on Saturday morning upon request, subject to an additional fee. Delve into topics such as assessing and treating injuries, managing environmental emergencies, improvising resources, and practicing decision-making in challenging scenarios. Gain the confidence to handle wilderness medical situations with competence and ensure the safety of yourself and others in the great outdoors. The primary purpose of the American Red Cross Wilderness and Remote First Aid course is to provide individuals a foundation of first aid principles and skills to be able to respond to emergencies and give care in areas that do not have immediate emergency medical services (EMS) response, such as wilderness and remote environments, including urban disasters, such as earthquakes and hurricanes. COURSE PREREQUISITES Current adult CPR/AED certification is a prerequisite for participation in the Wilderness and Remote First Aid course. Participants must also be 14 years of age on or before the last scheduled session of the course.
