The Remote First Aid is a 24-hour First Aid program delivered over 2.5 days (20 hours) supplemented with online learning (approximately 4 hours).
This course is intended for the first aider who has delayed access to emergency resources in order to prepare them to manage emergencies in remote wilderness locations. This course is a great introduction to wilderness first aid and is suitable for those who work in a non-standard environment or for those who recreate in the backcountry.
Participants receive access to online course materials for the duration of their certification. Use of all medical supplies required during the course is included. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will receive a Remote First Aid certificate and a Basic First Aid with Level C CPR certificate (for the workplace). Both certifications are valid for 3 years.
