Wilderness and Remote First Aid and CPR is required for high adventure trips.  This is a 19 hour course over 2 days and you must attend the full time frame. The training is good for 2 years.

This program is designed to teach individuals how to deal with emergency situations by using first aid skills in a delayed-help environment. The program is based on the 2010 Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines and offers enhanced content and topics to meet OSHA’s Best Practices for Workplace First Aid Training Programs and has been updated to reflect the latest emergency cardiovascular care science.

The Wilderness and Remote First Aid program is appropriate for audiences from youth-serving organizations as well as adults who participate in outdoor recreational activities or who work in wilderness or remote settings where emergency medical services (EMS) response is more than 1 hour away. The Wilderness and Remote First Aid program emphasizes experiential learning and major portions of the course are meant to be taught in outdoor settings. The program content has been revised to encompass ECCU 2015 and current guidelines by the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council. Features of the New Program The program artwork including the skill sheet has been revised. Skill sheets now match the content found within the First Aid/CPR/AED participant materials.

  • Integration of emergency action principles in a wilderness setting
  • Performing primary and secondary
  • Head (brain), neck and spinal injuries
  • Hypothermia
  • Heat-related emergencies
  • Altitude-related illnesses
  • Allergies and anaphylaxis
