ABOUT THE COURSE

Run in collaboration with Wilderness Medical Associates, Wilderness First Aid is an excellent introduction to wilderness emergency care. The program’s goal is to equip participants with the basic knowledge and skills to adapt first-aid techniques to the demands of wilderness locations. This course’s primary goal is to equip students to identify potential life threatening emergencies and their severity within a wilderness context. This course is ideal for those who want a brief but intense introduction to wilderness first-aid and are primarily doing personal trips and outings in remote areas. CPR included and recognized for workplace safety standards.  For a sample course outline please click here.

THIS COURSE IS SUBJECT TO A $25 APPLICATION FEE.

FUNDING & SUPPORT

Outward Bound Canada is a not-for-profit, charitable educational organization.  Our goal is to increase Canadians’ ability to access Outward Bound Canada’s life changing programs.   While almost anyone can benefit from an Outward Bound course, we have seen that our programs can have an incredibly unique impact for those facing significant transitions in their lives and have developed unique, charitable programs including our Veterans Program, Women of Courage Program, Aboriginal Community Programs and Youth-At-Risk Programs.  Tuition from our certification courses do not directly support Outward Bound Canada and it’s special programs.  Therefore, if you would be interested in making an additional donation to support Outward Bound Canada and it’s charitable programs please click here for donation information.
