Comprehensive first aid and CPR techniques for those who need a higher level of training to work and respond to emergencies in isolated or wilderness settings. Training is also suitable for those who act as guides or supervisors for groups of people. The course covers material in Standard First Aid & CPR, plus advanced strategies for providing extended care for more than 24 hours. Part of the course is taught in an outdoor setting and requires greater physical activity and endurance than typical first aid training.

Completion requirements - 100% attendance, skills performance, and 75% passing grade on exam

**Important Note: This course is recognized by Alberta OHS as a substitution for Standard First Aid with CPR AED level C for the purpose of workplace first aid. Please visit https://work.alberta.ca/documents/approved-firstaid-training-courses.pdf - this course is listed under "Canadian Red Cross". This means that if you take a Wilderness First Aid course, you do not have to also take standard first aid if you need a certificate for work.**
