Wilderness First Aid Training Course

Rationale

There are many areas in Canada where 911 is not an avail­able option in response to a med­ical or trau­matic emer­gency. Weather, remote­ness and lim­ited equip­ment can poten­tially delay access to EMS. This places con­sid­er­able respon­si­bil­ity on the actions and deci­sion mak­ing of res­cuers/first respon­ders. The need for knowl­edge and skills beyond the scope of ‘stan­dard’ first aid is distinct.

This is a 2 day course that is designed specifically for answering the needs of people who like to partake in Wilderness adventures, whether it be canoeing, hiking, etc.

The program is divided between classroom and practical skills, utilizing scenarios and simulations to enhance learning and develop effective interventions and competent patient care.
