Wilderness First Aid

Wilderness First Aid

Wilderness First Aid is typically a 2-day course that includes a certification in CPR.  This class is designed for climbers with no formal medical background or training and is an outstanding introduction to wilderness and climbing medicine. Usually hosted over a weekend and consisting of 16 hours of training, this course will better prepare you for wilderness emergencies. This program is accredited by the University of Utah School of Medicine and, as with all of our training, focuses on injuries/illnesses common in the mountains.
