The primary purpose of the Red Cross Wilderness and Remote First Aid course is to provide individuals a foundation of first aid knowledge and skills to be able to respond to emergencies and give care in areas that do not have immediate emergency medical services, such as wilderness and remote environments, and including urban disasters such as earthquakes and tornadoes. Successful course completion requires participation in all course activities and skill sessions. Some practice sessions may require strenuous physical activity. You are encouraged to check with your health care provider before registering for this course. If you need any special accommodations or modifications, or if you have any questions regarding your ability to participate fully in this course, please contact one of the course instructors before registering for the course. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a Red Cross certificate indicating Wilderness and Remote First Aid, which is valid for 2 years. Prerequisites: Current (within one year of date of issue) CPR/AED certification from the American Red Cross (or other recognized training agency).
