Training + Certification Courses

From our introductory Wilderness First Aid class, to our Wilderness First Responder and Wilderness EMT Upgrade certification courses, Center for Wilderness Safety has trained some of the most elite providers in all corners of the world; from military special operators and Search And Rescue professionals, to mountain guides and outdoor enthusiasts.

Our wilderness medical course curricula are evidence-based and are approved by our medical advisory board, the Wilderness Medical Society, and meet or exceed applicable national standards and guidelines as well. We focus on realistic, hands-on education taught by experienced instructors.
