Event Details

Have you recently completed your Remote First Aid training within the last year and are looking to enhance your skills? The Wilderness First Aid Bridging Course is designed to provide you with an additional 20 hours of advanced training, enabling you to earn a full 40-hour Wilderness First Aid certificate that is valid for three years.

 

The course will focus on developing leadership skills, assessment, decision-making skills, and strategies for providing extended care for up to 24 hours. The prevention, health, and wellness of the group will be a key focus. The training will take place in an outdoor setting and will require greater physical activity and endurance than typical first aid training. Additionally, we will cover basic shelter construction, which is not included in the certificate.
