Advanced Wilderness First Aid is a pre-professional course designed for hard-core adventurers and outdoors professionals who intend to spend days or weeks in significantly remote or challenging environments. This course expands on the Standard Wilderness First Aid course by preparing students for medical emergencies when hospitals and rescue services may not be available for an extensive time period. Students learn leadership, team management, risk mitigation and expanded treatment techniques to manage emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments, and improvised equipment.
