A 2 1/2 day course designed to cover remote first aid while enjoying a wilderness setting. All class sessions are held outdoors in the Rocky Mountain Wilderness, where the validity of each theory may be shown more effectively. Some classes may be modified as they progress due to the unpredictability of nature and weather.
Hands-on practical sessions and lectures combine with an outdoor environment to effectively introduce the unique challenges of casualty care in the wilderness. This course is a must for outdoor counsellors, hikers, hunters, and anyone involved in remote areas.
