Outward Bound Canada offers a range of wilderness certifications such as our instructor development program, white water rescue training, mountaineering, and wilderness first aid. Run in collaboration with Wilderness Medical Associates, Wilderness First Aid is an excellent introduction to wilderness emergency care. The program’s goal is to equip participants with the basic knowledge and skills to adapt first-aid techniques to the demands of wilderness locations.

This course’s primary goal is to equip students to identify potential life-threatening emergencies and their severity within a wilderness context. This course is ideal for those who want a brief but intense introduction to wilderness first-aid and are primarily doing personal trips and outings in remote areas. CPR included and recognized for workplace safety standards.
