The Wilderness Life Support, a wilderness first aid course, is offered in two formats:
Traditional In-Person Courses
16 hours of in-person classroom lectures and hands-on practical skills training.
All WLS courses teach students how to manage medical situations in the backcountry when traditional medical services are unavailable.
Some courses may include CPR training. The Wilderness Life Support certificate is valid for two years.
Online Wilderness Medicine Learning Modules
If you are interested in learning about specific wilderness medicine topics but don’t want to attend a live course, you can complete topic specific online courses based on your topic of interest.
