Service Description

This is a Wilderness Medical Associates course delivering WMA curriculum. An entry-level course designed for professionals working in significantly remote settings for days or weeks. Wilderness Advanced First Aid is comprehensive medical training designed for remote professionals or wilderness leaders who venture into remote and challenging environments. Wilderness Medicine differs significantly from standard first aid courses and other training that are oriented toward urban environments. This course teaches how to manage medical emergencies when hospitals and rescue services may not be available for an extensive time period. We prepare students for emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments, and improvised equipment. Unlike other training providers, our instructors are licensed medical professionals. Our instructors are not just reciting information but relaying personal experience and hold a deep understanding of physiology and how pathologies progress. We also are leaders in the field as guides, first responders and instructors. We understand that this can be a an intimidating course. We strive to use simple concepts and procedures for consistent outcomes. We understand how important it is to be open, supportive and engaging for the best learning environment.
