There will be an emphasis on making good decisions by staying calm and safe, doing good patient assessment, establishing efficient communication channels and providing proper leadership to the group. This 16 hour class will give the students ample time to practice their first aid and leadership skills in on outdoor setting. This class will focus on practicing skills and covering patient assessment, shock and bleeding, head and spinal injuries, wounds, musculoskeletal injuries, heat and cold illnesses, and much more.
The course will provide outdoor scenarios, which are the best place to practice and refresh first aid skills. The students will gain some good tools and knowledge to handle a wilderness first aid emergency. Successful completion of the class includes a Wilderness First Aid certificate. This course and certificate is required for adult leaders attending Philmont next year.
