Wilderness First Aid Certification

Join Trackers Earth as we host Wilderness Medical Training Institute;

Our Wilderness First Aid courses are designed to introduce you to the concepts of medical care in a wilderness setting. The course focuses on Basic Life Support skills, minor trauma, selected environmental topics, spine assessment and the ruling out process, allergic and toxic reactions, and “common” medical emergencies. As with all our courses, the majority of time is spent in hands-on skills practice and simulations. We are a contributor and signatory to the Wilderness First Aid Scope of Practice document.

Our Wilderness First Aid certifications are accepted by the American Camping Association for camp programs that are close to standard EMS assistance and by the Boy Scouts of America, including Philmont Scout Ranch. Unless stated otherwise in the course description, Wilderness CPR certification is not included.

The Wilderness Medicine Training Center is the only wilderness medicine provider who offers both standard and hybrid Wilderness First Aid courses using teaching and learning strategies that inform one another. The result is a choice of format and pedagogy that meets your needs; either course may be used to recertify Wilderness Advanced First Aid, Wilderness First Responder, and Wilderness EMT certifications with the successful completion of our on-line Recertification exam. Standard Wilderness First Aid Our standard Wilderness First Aid course contain lecture, skill labs, simulations, & case study review taught over three days; no advance study is required. Standard Wilderness First Aid courses are best suited for students who learn best with an instructor present to guide and motivate them throughout the course and/or for those students who do not have the time to devote to the pre-course study.
