Medical emergencies are not scheduled events, so being prepared can mean the difference between life or death. Be the one others count upon in times of crisis with a certification in Wilderness First Aid, Wilderness First Responder, Wilderness EMS, CPR, or Stop The Bleed.
Our Wilderness Medicine Academy is a leader in wilderness medical education, specializing in Wilderness First Aid, Wilderness First Responder, and Wilderness EMS courses, as well as public education courses like CPR and Stop The Bleed. Our teaching methods and philosophy incorporate the wilderness medical model, which from the first day stresses the importance of improvisation and critical thinking skills. The self confidence and skills you'll develop in your course will serve you equally well whether you're in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado or downtown Chicago.
Our curricula encompass the same national standards based didactic and psychomotor scope as any standard urban EMS training program, plus the addition of the wilderness EMS module. Stand out as a knowledgeable and skilled clinician with a wilderness medical certification from Remote EMS and the Wilderness Medicine Academy.
