Specialty Certifications

Any of the following certifications may be taken alone or combined with any other school course.

Specialty Certification: Wilderness First Aid*

The Wilderness First Aid Course was created by those who took trips in remote areas and found out that the regularly taught first aid courses did not train them for what could be expected in the forest or mountains they were visiting. And, therefore, a group of physicians from the Wilderness Medical Society, created a set of practice guidelines, providing the framework for Wilderness First Aid courses.

This course teaches you all that you need to know about the basics of packaging and transporting injured patients as well as managing life and limb threats in remote environments. This course includes the prevention and treatment of common environmental problems like Hypothermia and Heat Exhaustion and Stroke. In addition, you will also learn:
— Rescue and Evacuation;
— Patient Assessment System;
