Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. Pre-requisite for this course is to hold a valid and current CPR, First Aid, & AED certification through the American Heart Association or ASHI. This course goes deeper into injuries and illnesses that are more frequent in an outdoor environment. This course will be held over 2 days, you must attend both days to receive the course completion card. One day will be specific to classroom learning, the second day will be to finish any classroom and include a field-day with a trauma manikin at a location near Twin Falls, Idaho.
Meals, drinks, and snacks will be provided.
