This is a practical course designed for individuals working on remote sites or participating in outdoor activities outside of immediate medical assistance. This course provides participants with an introduction to wilderness first aid, with an emphasis on practical skills, decision making and dealing with environmental conditions. The Wilderness First Aid course may be modified to accommodate other elements of wilderness first aid, outdoor safety or leadership training. Topics covered included patient assessment, shock, wound management, burns, fractures, sprains, environmental injuries, common medical problems and first aid kits. This is a certificate course. Participants will have to attend all 20 hours of the course to receive the certificate.
