First-aid course

Try our fun, hands on realistic first-aid training in a no pressure learning environment

Wilderness and Remote First-Aid and CPR Level C

What happens if help is more than 1 hour away? What do I do if I'm two hours away from the hospital? These are common questions in our first-aid courses and this is why we offer the Canadian Red Cross Wilderness and Remote First-Aid course. This course is suitable for any individual who works, lives, or takes trips in isolated or wilderness areas. If you were looking at taking a course that is a little more comprehensive than a Standard First-Aid course and you want to do some of your learning outside then this is the course for you.

Course content:

  • Preparation and planning
  • Your health
  • Airway emergencies
  • Adult, Child, Infant CPR
  • First Aid for respiratory and cardiac arrest
  • Wound care
  • Bone, muscle, and joint injuries, includes building splints
  • Head and spine injuries
  • Environmental situations
  • Poisons
  • Cold and heat-related emergencies
  • Medical emergencies
  • Evacuation and transportation
  • Extended care

Red Cross First Aid certificates are now virtual! You will receive a temporary certificate at the end of your course, and your certificate will be emailed to you after the course has taken place.

Full Course Length: 20 Hours
Recertification: 12 Hours

Our Clients Say

Scenarios were excellent - more of those mixed with in field demonstations. Instructors clear, engaging & knowledgeable. Outside regardless of weather is better for all aspects of course.

Scenarios were great, good opportunities to rotate leadership, 'following', and being part of a large group situation. I liked instruction inside then having a chance to put it all together in scenarios. Good balance of lecture, demo and practice.
