Advanced/Wilderness First Aid (Remote Care)

class-logo-adv 1

What makes this class different?  You learn first aid protocols for “remote” response (ambulance is more than 30 minutes away).  This is the first aid you need to handle issues and injuries in remote or wilderness areas.  100_0067Also, first aid techniques in this class are more advanced than a standard first aid course…with more choices…plus higher performance standards.    This first aid works anywhere, as you also learn the traditional “rapid” response protocols for everyday situations.  The cost is $130 (16 hour class).  CPR/AED certification is included, for both adult and pediatric CPR.

The Advanced/Remote First Aid and CPR/AED cards are issued with a two year expiration date, in accordance with the 2015 global first aid standards updates.


Here is more information on the Advanced/Remote Care class, and what makes it different from conventional first aid and CPR classes.


Here is information on how to purchase an Advanced/Wilderness First Aid patch or an Advanced/Wilderness First Aid decal for your vehicle, equipment, or water bottle.


We also get a lot of questions regarding the difference between Advanced First Aid and Emergency Medical Responder.

Our first aid and CPR classes are fully compliant with current ECC standards and OSHA requirements.  Every student works on their own CPR dummy.  We continually add new dates, so check our schedule for current classes.  Participants will learn how to recognize an emergency, act appropriately, and respond with current first aid and CPR protocols.

Colorado First Aid would like to schedule more classes.  Do you want to host a session?  To teach the Advanced/Wilderness program we need 16 hours and will come to your location.

Note:  We prefer to deliver this as two class days back-to-back…or two one day sessions separated by no more than a week…we have observed participants are challenged if this class is broken up into smaller sessions.  Trust us on this one!  Click here to request information or request a class.
