Advanced Wilderness First Aid (40 hours)

Dave  - Kitimat SAr (1).JPG

This course is designed to prepare you to deal with someone for more than 24 hours. We teach a minimum of 75% of the course outside to create a realistic learning environment. This course has the Standard First Aid and CPR C with AED built into the course. Upon successful completion, you will have these certificates built into your Advanced Wilderness First Aid certificate. Like the WFA course, we add basic shelter construction that is not part of the certificate. 

The course is typically run over 2 weekends and length is dependant on group size and skill level. The first weekend is made up of the basic Wilderness First Aid program, and the second weekend is the Advanced portion of the course. Both weekends/ all four days together make up the full Advanced Wilderness First Aid certification. (We do hold at least 2 FULL 4 day (in a row) courses a year!

  • This course counts for 20 credits towards keeping your EMR License current :)
