Wilderness Medical Training for the Emergency Medical Responder and Emergency Medical Technician:

Adapt and overcome! We have become so dependent on technology that we have lost many of the skills traditionally used to cope with medical emergencies in the wild. This vigorous, hand-on, one week course will teach the basic skills you need to keep your patient alive and reduce injury when your ambulance and all its equipment are out of reach.

Wilderness Upgrade is a 40-hour course for those who are already certified as Emergency Medical Responder or EMTs. The course builds on the foundations of your EMS training and adds wilderness concepts and skills with many role-playing scenarios.

This program can also be taught in two weekends if that program schedule works better for your organization
