Why Wilderness First Aid?
Here are some of the that one of our WRFA courses might be right for your company or organization:
Optional OFA-1 Equivalent Certification: With only minor changes to the curriculum, you can add a WorkSafeBC-recognized OFA-1 equivalent certification to your course. The training you want, with the certifications you’ve got to have!
Excellent Teamwork Training: We minimize lecturing in favour of TONS of hands-on scenarios, where participants work together to manage medical emergencies. You will be amazed at the strong dynamics built over a 20 hour course!
Custom Content: The excellent Red Cross standard curriculum has plenty of room to adapt content to topics that are relevant to you. Examples include diving emergencies, high altitude, gunshots, and extreme environments.
Improvised Solutions: Low-resource and alternative-resource treatment options means that our students won't ever feel like they can't help someone because they don't have the right bandage.
Professional Instructors: No "Dr. Google." All of our instructors are medical professionals who draw on professional training and real world experience to answer your questions.
Tons of Hands-On Training: Our training model maximizes time spent applying & practicing skills so our students feel more prepared. Wicked scenarios with casualty-simulation make-up & props create fun, immersive experiences you won’t forget!
We Travel: We’re based in BC, but our instructors travel across Canada. Best of all, we don't charge any overage on travel & accommodation costs!
It's Fun! In over 5 years, we’ve never had a dull class - challenging, stimulating & occasionally (pretend) bloody - I promise your group will learn tons and have a blast doing it!
