Wilderness Module

 

This 2 to 4 hour course is often taught as an add-on to a one-day First Aid and CPR/AED course but can also be taught as a standalone course for individuals previously certified in First Aid. The Wilderness Module covers patient assessment, wound management, musculoskeletal injuries, and patient packaging and transport in a back country environment. 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.
