Customized Courses

 


Basic Wilderness First Aid

This course was originally developed to fulfill the needs of the full time and seasonal employees of the US Forest Service. Taught as an 8 hour course it bridges the gap between urban based First Aid and Wilderness First Aid. By adding a Wilderness Module and Bloodborne Pathogens to a Basic First Aid & CPR/AED course students are much better prepared to deal with real life emergencies in remote as well as urban settings.

 

Wilderness Module

When calling EMS is not an immediate option, or when help could be hours away, the task of managing the injured patient can challenge you well beyond the principles of Basic First Aid. The life saving skills presented in this course will empower you to make a difference when you or your coworkers are injured. The Wilderness Module covers:

Patient Assessment

Wound Management

Musculoskeletal Injuries

Patient Packaging and Transport in a Back Country Environment 

The hands-on practice of skills reinforces concepts and better prepares students to administer care in a remote setting where help may be hours away. This module is not intended to replace a Basic First Aid course but rather augment it with information and skills relevant to the wilderness. This course is often taught as a 2 hour add-on to a Basic First Aid and CPR/AED course but can also be taught as a 2 to 4 hour standalone course for individuals previously certified in Basic First Aid.

 

Bloodborne Pathogens

Designed specifically for the workplace and  individuals who must be trained in Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP) or Universal Precautions (UP). The BBP training course addresses the federal OSHA “Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens” standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) which prescribes safeguards to protect workers against the health hazards from exposure to blood and OPIM (other potentially infectious materials). Topics include:

General OSHA Standard for bloodborne pathogens training

How to Protect yourself from exposure to bloodborne pathogens

How to act appropriately when a bloodborne pathogens exposure occurs

How to clean up after a bloodborne pathogens exposure

How to properly report any bloodborne pathogens exposures
