Wilderness Survival Training Course
MTAC Wilderness Survival Training Course
The practice of medicine where definitive care is more than one hour away, and often days to weeks away. The practice of wilderness first aid training is defined by difficult patient access, limited equipment, and environmental extremes.
Knowledge is Key
The Wilderness Survival Training Course will instruct participants on how to identify, diagnose, and treat medical conditions that may occur in remote wilderness environments. Whether your interest or expertise lies in the realm of backpacking, hiking and wilderness exploration, skiing, mountaineering or white water rafting, to name a few, certification in this course will give you the knowledge and skill-set to handle situations in which there is minimal access to resources.
Practice Builds Confidence and Effectiveness
This AWLS based course consists of a combination of lecture and hands-on instructional sessions of mock-victim scenarios. This practical foundation in wilderness medicine will enhance your competency to assess patients and follow treatment guidelines for life support until further care or evacuation is available. A wide range of emergencies and conditions will be covered, such as hyper and hypothermia, high altitude related problems, moving and evacuating patients, avalanche, and infectious disease.
It's the Florida Keys!
