NOLS Wilderness First Aid #1

Description: 

NOLS Wilderness First Aid #1

Whether spending time in the backcountry is your passion or your profession, you should never have to ask, "What do I do now?" Prepare for the unexpected with this fun, hands-on introduction to wilderness medicine. If you like to take short trips relatively close to medical resources, work at camps or lead wilderness trips, enjoy weekend family outdoor activities, or recreate outdoors, this course is for you. You'll learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for injuries and illnesses common in the outdoors, how to manage environmental emergencies, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions. You will spend half your time practicing skills and participating in realistic scenarios.

NOLS Wilderness Medicine’s course is approved by such organizations as the American Camp Association, the United States Coast Guard, and other state and federal agencies.

This course does not include CPR. If you need CPR, please see our website for our upcoming course offerings: http://recreation.ucsc.edu
