COURSE DESCRIPTION

Now required by the Boy Scouts of America for its high-adventure bases Philmont and Northern Tier, this 16-hour intensive course teaches students how to properly assess, treat, and manage common illnesses and injuries in a remote environment where definitive care of a physician and/or rapid transport is not readily available. In this class, course participants will learn how to assess, treat, and, when possible, prevent medical and traumatic emergencies within the scope of their training.

Wilderness First Aid combines lecture with skills practice and role-playing to teach the response to various medical and trauma situations in locations 60 minutes more from definitive care. Time is the essential element distinguishing wilderness first aid from standard first aid. Students will learn to prioritize care, treat injuries, improvise equipment, and create an evacuation plan.



NOTE: This course does NOT offer any meals, lodging or overnight accommodations.
