Outline:

The Wilderness and Remote First Aid course is a three day Red Cross certified course hosted by T'ashii Paddle School, in Tofino. This course takes place over 3 days; Friday evening to Sunday. Only the Friday evening portion (CPR portion) of the course takes place inside. The rest of the course is run in the field with a focus on hands on experience. Students will learn and practice; spinal immobilization, building splints, building stretchers, carrying patients in a stretcher over rugged terrain, treating hypothermia, re-aligning fractures and dislocation as well as a variety of other wilderness rescue procedures. 

Most importantly the course develops students abilities to help patients by developing wilderness emergency decision making skills required to assess patients and make evacuation plans. Students will practice both the acquired hard skills in combination with decision making skills during realistic outdoor scenarios designed to build students confidence in their ability to respond to emergencies in remote settings.  

This is an interactive hands on course, students should be prepared to spend full days outside, get dirty, wet, work hard and have fun. 

Certification is valid for 3 years.
