Wilderness First Aid Training

Every three years Naturally Superior Adventures hosts a suite of outdoor based First Aid courses designed for recreational outdoor enthusiasts, club leaders, workers in wilderness areas, including fly-in camps, line workers, park maintenance staff, forestry workers, prospectors and the professional outdoor adventure guide. These courses are based on the principals of wilderness care and first aid and a practical, hands-on approach to training using assessment scenarios and patient simulation.

Next set of courses will be set for spring 2021. If you would like to be notified when we have our dates scheduled, join our mailing list here.

Our approach is Learn + Practice + Repetition = Appropriate First Aid Response. These courses are delivered by either Wilderness Medical Associates or The Canadian Wilderness Medical Training and are based on competency guidelines developed by the Wilderness Medical Society; this program identifies a selection of skill sets that define the first responder standard. CWMT is a registered education centre for the Emergency Care and Safety Institute, which in turn is endorsed by the American Academy of Emergency Physicians and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
