Wilderness First Aid provides information on how to handle common injuries and illnesses when medical care is an hour away or more. Designed for those who work or travel in remote locations, these courses will teach you what to look for and what to do in the event of an emergency, and will direct you to the most appropriate type of care. Certifications are good for two years. Students will receive either a Wilderness First Aid Field Guide or a Wilderness First Aid eBook, depending on availability.
