Wilderness First Aid Training 2017


Train for Emergencies in Wilderness and Remote Environments

Ideal for scouts and leaders, our 16-hour Wilderness and Remote First Aid course gives you the skills and confidence you need to respond to an emergency when help may be delayed. The course meets BSA requirements for wilderness first aid training among all crews participating in national and council high adventure camps. Course participants must be at least 14 years of age and possess current certification in adult CPR/AED. We are offering CPR on the Friday evening before the course.
