This course from the Emergency Care and Safety Institute follows the recommended curriculum developed by the Wilderness Medical Associates International. Advanced Wilderness First Aid is designed to teach participants how to deal with emergency situations involving life-threatening injuries and common medical conditions in locations an hour or more away from hospital or clinic care. The course combines classroom lecture, skills practice and scenarios to teach the response, assessment and treatment of injuries and illnesses in various medical and traumatic situations. Students will learn to prioritize care, treat injuries in the field and create a plan which includes evacuation to more advanced medical care.

This course meets OSHA and US Coast Guard requirements for standard first aid/CPR training, and meets the advanced wilderness first aid requirement imposed by the Park Service and most State agencies for guide or outfitter licensing or permits.
