This is a four-day comprehensive medical course designed for outdoor professionals or wilderness leaders who venture into the remote backcountry and challenging environments. This course introduces how to manage medical emergencies when hospitals and rescue services may not be available for an extensive time period.

Upon completion, students will receive certification in Wilderness Advanced First Aid and Adult CPR, which are valid for 3 years.

This course will be taught by a Wilderness Medical Associates’ professional with significant patient care and backcountry experience through Mountain Skills Academy & Adventures (MSAA). The course is for ACC members only, at a discounted price of $399.00. An early bird discount is available for anyone registering before June 2, 2017. MSA applies.

Please note, this course requires a minimum of 6 participants to run. In the event that fewer than 6 participants sign up, MSAA will attempt to fill remaining spots with members of the general public. If minimum numbers cannot be met prior to the course date, the course will be rescheduled or a refund provided to participants.

Required Items to Bring:
All teaching materials will be provided at no additional cost. We recommend you bring a writing utensil, and clothing appropriate for the weather conditions that day, as much of the course will be conducted outside.

You can also bring a backpack of outdoor equipment (things you would normally have with you in the backcountry; e.g., hiking poles, sleeping bags) so you can practice how you might be able to use them in an emergency situation.
