Wilderness First Aid Classes
We now offer two different classes! Basic Wilderness First Aid and Wilderness First Aid.
Basic Wilderness First Aid
This is a 16 hour combination class. Day 1 is American Heart Association CPR/AED/First Aid. Students will receive a textbook and certification card good for two years. Day 2 is American Health and Safety Institute (ASHI) Basic Wilderness First Aid. Topics include: Getting Help, Wilderness Wound Care, Medical Emergencies, Environmental Emergencies and First Aid Kits. Students will also participate in Case Studies and Hands-On Skills. Students will receive a Basic Wilderness First Aid certification card good for two years. This class is good for people with little to no medical background or little to no outdoor experience. This also serves as a great refresher for people that do have experience. Students must be at least 14 years old to participate.
Class information: This class is held at the PATC Headquarters in Vienna, VA. It runs from 9am until 5 pm on both days. The cost per person is $130.
