Wilderness Training (16-20 Hrs)
[Boy Scout compliance met]
Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. When a person becomes injured of ill in the wilderness, the time and distance to traditional emergency medical services may be hours or even days. First aid providers in a wilderness setting will be faced with limited resources, will have to care for a patient for a much longer time period, and must make decisions about when and how fast to evacuate a patient. The goal of this program is to provide learners a valuable and enjoyable hands-on training in wilderness first aid. The fundamental objective is to teach a simple, practical approach that helps students develop the knowledge, skill, and confidence to respond to and care for an injured or ill person in a wilderness environment for a n extended period of time.
This program is designed to focus on caring for injured or ill persons in remote settings. The focus of the program will depend largely upon organizational and student needs, including requirements specific to licensure or job performance. Program knowledge and skills may be offered according to organizational policies, occupational requirements or desire of the target audience.
