Wilderness & Remote First Aid

School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences

Enrol in Wilderness & Remote First Aid

Course Code: NATR121

The Red Cross Basic Wilderness & Remote First Aid course covers material in the Standard First Aid & CPR programs, plus special material on techniques for those who work in and may need to respond to emergencies in remote or wilderness settings. This course was designed to address the needs of field personnel and others who work in remote locations, where resources may be less than adequate, and evacuation to a hospital is hours away. This course is ideal for personnel in natural resource management, exploration, forestry, mining, and related industries. The course offers strategies for providing extended care for up to 24 hours. Part of the course is taught in an outdoor setting and requires greater physical activity and endurance than typical first aid training. It is suitable for those who work or live in remote locations and outdoor recreation enthusiasts. 3-year certification for Basic Wilderness & Remote First Aid, CPR Level C, & AED are included upon successful completion.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
