This 16-hour course taught by Aerie Medicine is designed for students who have little or no experience in first aid
or wilderness medicine. It is well suited for individuals who are responsible for friends and family while in the backcountry as well as professional guides. Along with basic medical and trauma concerns we discuss how these emergencies can be addressed in a wilderness
environment. This includes topics such as evacuation, litter construction, backcountry communications, and decision-making. A Wilderness First Aid certification is valid for 2 years. After your certification expires you simply need to retake the class to renew.
