Wilderness Medical Training


Our Mission:


One of the primary missions of our primary missions is education and training. We are extremely pleased to be able to take this education to the next level by offering Wilderness Medical Training.


Who is this training for?


The Wilderness First Aid certification is an entry-level course for wilderness medicine and has no pre-requisites. It is highly recommended for anyone who spends time in the backcountry. Whether you are planning on leading a multi-day trip or even a day hiker who wants to be prepared for anything that may come up. Skiers, kayakers, mountain bikers, climbers, and campers... everyone can benefit from this training.


Experienced Instructors


Each instructor is an experienced and current member of Mountain Rescue. Because of this, the instructors bring real-world, hands-on experience to the classroom. All instructors are at a minimum a wilderness EMT.
