Advanced Wilderness First Aid – Bridge from Basic – St. John’s

Saturday, Jul 28, 2018
– Sunday, Jul 29, 2018

9:00am – 7:00pm

As this is a bridging course, students will be required to show current certification in basic wilderness first aid from Canadian Red Cross prior to taking this training.

About the training: This course reinforces key 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.
