Mother Nature Never Quits
Even During a Pandemic, Backcountry
Medicine is More Important Than Ever.
⚠️ EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY ⚠️
Due to growing safety concerns from the COVID-19 Delta variant, all in-person trainings have been temporarily suspended for at minimum, 4 to 6 weeks, tentatively resuming at the end of October, 2021. As the safety and wellbeing of our students and faculty are of the utmost importance, we have implemented a temporary halt of all in-person training until the severity of the pandemic is reduced, at which point we will re-evaluate and make a determination on whether to re-open or continue the temporary suspension of in-person training. COURSES WILL RESUME OCTOBER 30, 2021.
Since the pandemic has created a renewed emphasis on how how we learn; now that in-person gatherings are far and few between, we just launched a BRAND NEW Hybrid/Online course: Hybrid Wilderness First Aid! Click below to Learn More…
Free Course: Tick Safety
In 2011 (after getting so much traffic that it actually crashed our website), we created the National Tick Safety program, located at TickSafety.com — a website, geared toward just tick safety awareness and education.
Then in 2012, we began Testing Ticks for Lyme disease, and have seen a steady growth in tick encounters (& Lyme disease) nationwide…until now. This year alone, we’ve seen the largest increase in tick encounters and submissions for tick identification and testing ever! 😳
Required by many outdoor programs (such as Scouts BSA for Philmont, Northern Tier, Florida Sea Base, etc.) this 16-hour course teaches participants the assessment of, and treatment given to an ill or injured person in a wilderness setting where help may be delayed.
This specialized two and a half day course teaches participants the assessment of, and treatment given to an ill or injured person in a remote and often cold, wet environment. WFA Afloat is packed with hands-on scenarios, all pertaining to water-related emergencies.
Wilderness First Responder is considered the industry standard for all outdoor professionals, trail and river guides, SAR personnel, trip leaders, etc. This 80-hour intensive course includes a wide range of topics including long-term patient care, evacuation and more!
