Wilderness First Aid


Hikers, backpackers, climbers, and campers
all know that wilderness environments create special situations in which medical services may be hours or even days away.

This fun, in-depth, 2-day (8-hours each day) course uses hands-on skills practice and real-life, scenario-based instruction to help prepare you for outdoor medical emergencies when help is not quickly available.

Completion of both Part 1 and Part 2 fulfills the Boy Scouts training requirement.

Boy Scouts are required to complete the CPR-AED course prior to attending this class.

Course Fee: $150.00
(Compare to $265.00 at R.E.I.)
