The Sierra Rescue Wilderness First Aid course is designed with the outdoor professional in mind. It focuses on developing skills for treating problems outside the “golden hour” of first response.  It is based on the protocols set by the Wilderness Medical Society and instruction encourages the student’s ability to think through body systems in an effort to determine the best response to traumatic, environmental or medical situations.  Classroom sessions are followed with hands on practice to integrate the information in a field setting.  100% attendance is required and a night scenario may be included.  A comprehensive written exam is also administered.  The course includes optional CPR certification that is OSHA approved through American CPR that can be purchased from Sierra Rescue for an additional fee of $10.00pp.
