Has this ever happened to you?
Honey, I chopped my hand with my axe!
Do you know what to do?
Wilderness First Aid certification will give you the skills and confidence to deal with an injured or ill person for up to 24 hrs. You will learn to assess for dangers, identify wounds, dress wounds and even save someone from hypothermia!
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.
The regular rate for the course is $249 + tax but the Island Mountain Ramblers have secured a preferred rate, and we are passing those savings onto our members! In addition, the club is covering the cost of taxes and the fee for the venue. This all adds up to a savings of over $60!
Trip Leader Fee: $175.00
Club Member Fee: $215.00
Non-member Fee: $230.00 (super secret info: club membership $34, join now?)
