Wilderness First Aid is a great course for anyone who spends time in the outdoors. Whether you're a hiker, mountain biker, backpacker, climber, or trail runner, you'll learn skills that will help you deal with injuries and illnesses when outside civilization.

The course can also serve as an introduction to wilderness medicine for outdoor professionals, guides, and rangers.

There are no prerequisites and no expected prior knowledge.
