Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. With an ASHI Wilderness First Aid class, first aid providers in a remote outdoor setting will be better prepared to respond with wilderness first aid training when faced with limited resources, longer times to care for someone, and decisions about when and how fast to evacuate an ill or injured person.  A Wilderness First Aid certificate is required if traveling, camping or hiking more than thirty minutes from emergency medical services.  Price includes WFA Certificate, food and lodging during the course, and a student manual.

Wilderness First Aid Course Includes

Information-filled slide presentation covering wilderness and remote first aid from a basic understanding of emergency response in an outdoor setting to specific techniques and considerations for a wide range of injuries and illnesses. 

Wilderness First Aid Classes topics include:

  • Preparation and Assessment
  • Preventing and Caring for Injuries and Illnesses
  • Environmental Hazards
  • Other Wilderness Considerations
