Description

Designed for scouts and scout leaders, outdoor enthusiasts and anyone who works or spends time in remote environments, this American Red Cross course teaches advanced skills to be used in emergencies when help from professional first responders may be far away. Based on the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines, this course aligns with OSHA’s Best Practices for Workplace First Aid Training Programs.
