The Wilderness First Aid is a unique and comprehensive first aid course for the outdoor enthusiast. It is a two-day introduction to general medical skills in the field where there is no direct medical assistance available. The content of the course follows the most important issues of first aid in an outdoor environment and the general standards and medical requirements of the Wilderness Medical Society (WMS). The target group is everyone who loves to spend time in remote areas far from medical assistance. Medical knowledge prior to the course is not necessary. This course is organised by Outdoor Medicine, and is given in English.
