Wilderness First Aid Basics is an American Red Cross course designed to serve as an educational resource for those involved in activities that take them beyond the scope of traditional urban emergency services. In these cases, emergency care is delayed until help can be notified and rescuers can reach the intended patient. This course helps provide the knowledge and skills necessary to deal with these emergencies until more advanced care can be provided. Participants must be at least 15 years old. CPR is a prerequisite for this course. Participants that successfully complete the 16 hour course (pre-course assignment and three sessions) qualify to serve as a Level 2 First-Aider. Participants must attend the full session, demonstrate practical skills and successfully complete a written test. Wilderness First Aid Basics certification is 3 years. The training manuals will be mailed after the course fee has been paid.
