Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. With ASHI’s Wilderness First Aid, students learn how to prevent some emergencies and what to do should one arise and help is not readily available. This course is designed for situations where help may take a long time to get to the patient.
This comprehensive 16-20 hour course meets the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid curriculum and guidelines.
Course content includes:
- Preparation and Assessment
- Preventing and Caring for Injuries
- Environmental Hazards
- Biological Hazards
- Medical Emergencies
Individuals who require or desire wilderness first aid knowledge and skills, but are not professional responders; including adventure guides, outdoor enthusiasts, camp counselors and administrators, camp participants, park and forest rangers, and other occupations that work in a wilderness environment.
Cost: $145 per person (includes handbook to keep)
