WILDERNESS FIRST AID

Travelling into the wilderness or remote areas is becoming both popular and accessible. It is essential to plan and train not only for the adventure, but also for the “just in case” and “worse case scenarios”. When help is delayed, your immediate first aid actions can make a difference.  We want to make sure you are prepared.

We have partnered with Wilderness Medical Associates (WMA)

For these medical courses, we partner with Wilderness Medical Associates. WMA has set the standard in wilderness medicine for over 30 years. Their thought-provoking curriculum is updated by a group of healthcare professionals and is recognized around the world.
