Our Instructing Philosophy
If you work, live or play in the backcountry, Coast Wilderness Medicine aims to prepare you to manage medical emergencies when resources are scarce and rescue could be hours or days away. Don’t expect rigid protocols - we focus on basic principles, simple but effective techniques, and informed decision making.
This 8 hour recert opportunity takes place entirely outdoors at Little Cates Park, in Deep Cove. Festivities begin at 9 AM on Sunday, October 27. You should plan for a 6 PM finish.
The course has a maximum of 12 students.
If you have an unexpired Wilderness First Aid certification, successful completion of the course will earn you a brand new Wilderness & Remote First Aid with CPR C certificate from the Canadian Red Cross, valid for 3 years.
If you do not hold an unexpired Wilderness First Aid certification, you are welcome to attend the training, but we unfortunately will not be able to award a certification upon completion. If you need to be certified, or feel like a refresher might not be sufficient, please take a look at our full WFA course.
WFA Student feedback
Amazing team of instructors. They don't just share their experiences and knowledge verbally but throw you into real world scenarios and let you gain skill and confidence. Classes go hand in hand with students and instructors so you don't just sit down and listen, and they leave no questions unanswered :)
I want to complement Quinn on being an outstanding instructor. She was knowledgeable, energetic, and creative in her scenarios! I also appreciated having a women instructor, and commend Coast for reflecting the diversity of people who play and work in our BC wilderness.
The course content is vast in scope and extremely relevant to our situation. Every moment of learning was interesting. The instructors were outstanding, they know and love their craft. I also appreciated the learning environment - the course was taken seriously by everyone involved, but we still had time to laugh, connect, and have fun.
