The Wilderness & Remote First Aid program aims to meet the safety needs of all those who are interested in the
outdoors and the variety of experiences that can be found there. There are two levels of Wilderness & Remote
First Aid: Canadian Red Cross Certification Good For 3 Years.

The Wilderness & Remote First Aid course focuses on people who:  
  • Take day trips into the wilderness or enjoy spending time in a remote location
  • Travel in areas where help is hours away
  • Recreate within wilderness and remote areas for leisure
  • Assumes that the First Aider may spend up to 24 hours with an ill or injured person
  • 20 hours long, 2 days in class 1 day out in the field

The Advanced Wilderness & Remote First Aid course focuses on:
  • Outdoor Leaders
  • People who take extended trips into wilderness or remote locations
  • People who provide recreational or leisure experience as a professional guide
  • Assumes that the First Aider may spend more than 24 hours with the ill or injured person
  • Covers extended care in more detail
  • Covers environmental issues in remote areas that affect long-term well-being

    informed decisions and judgment calls

  • 40 hours long, 2 days in class with 2 or 3 days in the field

Either course may be suitable for people who work or live in a remote area depending on what kind of work they
do and the resources they have available, such as transportation, shelter, equipment, and first aid supplies.
