Wilderness First Aid Certification Course 

March 25th & 26th

Brock Environmental Center

If you are not able to make it to the January certification course you are in luck! This certification course will be offered in March and again on June 24th and 25th–at the Brock Environmental Center!

splint-wilderness

With this course, get the internationally-renowned 2-year certification from SOLO, the oldest continuously-operating school of wilderness medicine in the world.

Mired in a disaster zone, travel or rural area far from hospital, or natural area miles from an access point…accidents, destructive weather, and terrorism happen, and all-too-often members of a group are not capable of dealing with the emergency. This leads to improper care of the patient, and endangers the entire group. Many accidents are preventable, and improper care of trauma can compound even simple injuries. Very few first aid programs actually address the issues of providing emergency care in a setting where 911 is overwhelmed or not immediately reachable. In this course, classroom instruction and Q&A are interwoven with practical work and problem-solving exercises. Hands-on experience – a most powerful
learning tool – during scenarios comprise ~50% of class. 8:30am – 6:30pm both days; you come away with actual do-it-yourself care-giving confidence.
