Wilderness First Aid Basics
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.
The training manuals will be mailed after the course fee has been paid.
Participants must be at least 15 years old. Participants that successfully complete the Wilderness First Aid Basic 16 hour course (pre-course assignment and three sessions) qualify to serve as a Level 2 First-Aider.
CPR is a prerequisite for this course. Participants must attend all three sessions of the weekend, demonstrate practical skills and successfully complete a written test.
Wilderness First Aid Basics certification is 3 years.
