This training is designed to provide you with the skills to assess and provide treatment to an ill or injured person in a remote environment where care by a professional is not available. Here, you will learn how to assess, treat and when possible, prevent medical and traumatic emergencies within the scope of your training.
This training will consist of group discussions and skill instruction, followed by scenarios where you will put your skills to the test. This course will follow the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines.
