Wilderness First Aid (III)

The uOttawa wilderness first-aid course is based on national guidelines. As such, it provides you with the knowledge and skills to manage wilderness emergencies during field work, research and other activities. Because the course revolves around providing first aid in remote locations, we recommend that all participants be certified first-aiders or have taken first-aid training in the recent past. The concepts resemble a standard first-aid course, but include more details about specialized areas like hypothermia, med-evac and wildlife hazards.
