Remote First Aid June 2022

This 20-hour Remote First Aid Course challenges students to apply standard first aid skills in more realistic scenarios. Students are taught to improvise, critically think, and to anticipate and manage outdoor stressors often experienced in emergencies in remote and wilderness settings. A large emphasis will be on navigating proper patient assessments, improvising first aid applications, and planning patient care strategies in austere environments. The majority of this course is taught outside, allowing students to explore their skill sets with environmental challenges, adding to the overall learning experience.

The course will be led by Rebecca Basset with Back40 Wilderness First Aid Training.

The minimum age is 16 years. No previous first aid certification is required.

A minimum of 6 participants is needed to run the course. The course is limited to a maximum of 9 participants.
