Description

Please visit Mt. Waddington’s Outdoors, or call 604-846-1984 to register

This course is designed to help you deal with an injured or ill person for up to 24 hrs. Because of the nature of the problems you may be dealing with in the outdoors, at least 50% of the course is taught outside. This course has the Standard First Aid and CPR C with AED built into the course. This means that upon successful completion of the course, you will have your Standard First Aid and CPR C certificates built into your Wilderness First Aid certificate.

In addition to the course content we include basic shelter construction that is not part of the certificate. We include this because of the nature of the environment that you will be working and the relevance to the course content.

Course is run over 1 weekend and length is dependant on group size and skill level.

Free Skill Refreshers for anyone who takes our Wilderness First Aid courses, up to 2 years after the course!
