ADVANCED WILDERNESS FIRST AID (AWFA - 40 hours, 4 days)

$630 plus GST 

4 days, over the course of two weekends (June 22,23,29,30). May involve
an overnight experience the night of June 29!  Location: Prince George

There are wilderness emergencies that require first aid skils, decision
making, leadership, and wilderness survival skills... and sometimes
urban disasters that need similar expertise.  Advanced Wilderness First
Aid is essential in ANY disaster situation. Too often we depend on
hospitals and paramedics. In addition to remote settings, what if they
are unable to reach you because of washed out roads and bridges,
wildfires, snow storms, or slides?

You must be prepared to take care of yourself, your students, your
friends, your family, your community.  This training will give you the
confidence to deal with nearly any level of emergency.
