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 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!
