Whether you’re planning a summer camping trip, backpacking excursion, or trail run, being prepared for an emergency is just as important as having the right gear. This 2-day, 18-hour Wilderness First Aid class will equip you to respond to unexpected injuries or illnesses in locations and situations where resources may be limited and emergency responders are slower to arrive.
Taught by safety and wellness educator Shawn Ritchey, this American Health and Safety Institute course prepares students to quickly respond to a variety of wilderness-specific situations that require first aid intervention.
