Wilderness and Remote First Aid
Prerequisite: Current Adult and Child CPR/AED certification.
Wilderness and Remote First Aid certification is valid for two years.
This certification provides individuals with a foundation of First Aid skills so they can respond to emergencies and give care in areas without immediate emergency medical response (EMS). This certification is required when emergency medical response (EMS) will take more than 30 minutes to arrive. Successful course completion requires participation in all course activities and skill sessions. Some practice sessions may require strenuous physical activity, including walking uphill or on uneven terrain.
If accommodations are needed, or if you have any questions about your ability to participate fully in this course, please contact Shaun Lindhoff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314.400.4628.
