Canadian Wilderness Medical Training (CWMT) Certification - Event Full Feb 1, Waiting List people accepted

This 16 hour course concentrates on the basics of packaging and transporting patients, and managing life and limb threats in remote environments. It includes prevention and treatment of common environmental problems like hypothermia and heat exhaustion and stroke.
The Wilderness First Aid programs are designed for the recreational outdoor enthusiast, trip leader, and the professional guide. These courses are based on the principals of wilderness care and first aid.

To know the full details (and cost) of this course you need to log in and read the entirety of this outing on the WCA website, and the CWMT website. The CWMT is a certified education centre for the Emergency Care and Safety Institute and an Authorized Provider for the Canadian Red Cross.

** The WCA highly recommends that people organizing back country canoe trips take this course, especially for multiple day trips where 911 help isn't accessible. Also, it doesn't hurt to have multiple people trained on any trip.

Note: This is a repeat of the same course given in March 2023.
