The course is hosted by Eastside Bait & Tackle and taught by Finns West
The Basic Wilderness First Aid course was designed specifically for individuals, guides and outfitters who want a little more confidence in their first aid skills. This is our most popular course for individuals who work and play in the outdoor environment that may be faced with delayed response from emergency services.
We created this course in response to the lack of expanded training found in traditional 1-day first aid courses for individuals working in environments where emergency response is delayed and where knowledge of environmental emergencies, common medical issues and patient protection / packaging are paramount.
The core of the Basic Wilderness First Aid course is first aid in the wilderness / remote environment focusing on Quick Patient Assessment; Life Threats, Common Medical Emergencies, Environmental Emergencies, Critical Thinking Skills and Hands on Skills.
*CPR certification is not offered with this particular course but CPR training / skills are provided (per AHA guidelines)
The course will be held at Goose Creek State Park, outside of Bath, NC, on Saturday March 30, 2024
The course will be from 9a-4p (lunch is not provided)
Cost: $110 / person
*this includes waterproof Wilderness First Aid Field Guide
We will utilize the enclose education shelter and surrounding park areas behind the visitor center for our scenarios and hands-on instruction.
