Run in collaboration with Wilderness Medical Associates, This 4-day course is designed for graduates of the Wilderness Advanced First Aid who want to continue their training and upgrade their certification to the Wilderness First Responder level.

This comprehensive course will review concepts learned in earlier courses and build on previous knowledge to cover a new range of wilderness medical issues. A review package will be sent to students prior to the course in order for them to come prepared to this intense and stimulating course. For a sample course outline please click here.

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.
