Course Overview


The longer course is appropriate for group leaders, outdoor professionals and the outdoor enthusiast who may be away from immediate medical help for more than a day. The Advanced Wilderness First Aid course builds on the WFA going into greater depth on the basic first aid subjects, emphasizes leadership skills, and presents new skills such as building improvised litters and litter carrying. As the course is also quite short, you will gain the maximum benefit from it if you are already familiar with basic first aid concepts and practices. On previous courses you will most likely have learned reactive first aid; on this advanced course you will learn to make proactive decisions among other skills.
