Wilderness medicine is the practice of medicine when professional care is more than an hour away – sometimes even days. This can be due to environmental extremes, such as those found on backpacking or hiking trips. In order to ensure that you are confident when taking youth outdoors, BAWT offers the Widlerness First Aid course which is essential for any backpack trip leader or wilderness professional.
This highly experiential 16-hour class is for anyone who wants to learn how to handle emergency medical situations in the backcountry. It covers basic wilderness first aid topics.
