This course will help you feel more in control and confident taking clients out on your programs away from parking lots, towns and emergency assistance.

This 40-hour Adventure Medic course provides individuals with comprehensive first aid and CPR techniques.
It is a more appropriate and recommended level of training for individuals working as hiking guides, allowing you to respond to emergencies in all locations from trailside walks to wilderness settings.
The course covers material in Standard First Aid & CPR, plus advanced strategies for providing extended care for more than 24 hours. Part of the course is taught in an outdoor setting and requires greater physical activity and endurance than typical first aid training.
This course is hosted by the Interpretive Guides Association and is being taught by Rocky Mountain Adventure Medicine.
Participants receive a course workbook, textbook “Wilderness First Aid – Emergency Care for Remote Locations”, and an Adventure Medic Wilderness First Aid certification. Use of all medical supplies required during the course is included. Participants will have the option to purchase a first aid kit and/or supplies at a discounted rate during the course.
The course will be taught in person following strict Covid-19 policies. Please come prepared to wear a mask throughout the days and follow the rules set out by the first aid instructor. Please read and be prepared to adhere to our COVID-19 policy
