"I have taken numerous first aid courses including a 4 day wilderness first aid course in the past. STSC's Wilderness First Aid was, without question, the most comprehensive course on the subject I have ever taken."

Course Overview: Wilderness First Aid Certification. Learn To Respond To Medical Emergencies When Far From Help
Come spend two days of extremely hands on training in wilderness first aid with us during our nationally recognized certification course. Wilderness first aid is different from standard first aid in that; it can require extended care (24hrs+), it can require you to improvise and form gear from your camping equipment and.or surroundings, and you must take exposure measures (care for the patient's needs in terms of warmth and cooling), training is hands on, and students learn to improvise their own medical gear from their surroundings, and students perform a much higher level of medical intervention- (i.e. students will learn to set certain dislocated joints, close wounds, and more)
Our two day/12+ hour course is a nationally accepted certification course fro the American Safety & Health Institute- the world's largest private EMS training provider.

*Cleaning, dressing, closing, and packing wounds
