Because of the nature of the problems you may be dealing with in the outdoors, at least 50% of the course is taught outside. Upon completing this course you will earn the Standard First Aid and CPR C certificates, including instruction on using the Automatic External Defribulator (AED). This is in on top to  your Wilderness First Aid certificate.

In addition to the course content we include basic shelter construction that is not part of the certificate. We include this because of the nature of the environment that you will be working and the relevance to the course content.
