Wilderness First Aid Certification

Wilderness First Aid Certification

December 10, 2018 to December 11, 2018
Student Recreation and Wellness Center
08:00 AM to 05:00 PM
The American Red Cross basic course in backcountry emergency response. This 16 hour course is for those who work, live or play in remote areas – away from the usual EMS service. Even though the emergency workers near these areas may be trained to search for and rescue those in need, there may be a delay in the notification of assistance, the time required to get to the patient, or in moving the patient to more advanced treatment.

This class covers assessment and urgent first aid techniques, but not in-depth CPR. Basic first aid skills are covered, making this course appropriate for anyone regardless of experience level. Current certification in CPR/AED is required. A certification can be issued that has an expiration of 2 years and serves as a Basic First Aid certification as well. A minimum age of 15 is recommended for participants due to the serious nature of the course and scenarios.
