CorpsTHAT is hosting a Wilderness First Aid training taught by two co-instructors: a Deaf outdoor professional and a Gallaudet professor. Prepare for the unexpected in the wilderness with this engaging, hands-on introduction to wilderness medicine, taught over three days. If you like to take short trips relatively close to medical resources, work at wilderness camps, enjoy weekend family outdoor activities, or recreate outdoors, this course is for you.
This course is great for people of all experience levels, and is best suited for those who recreate outdoors where a medical response team can be expected in a timely manner which is considered less than eight hours. You’ll learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for illnesses and injuries that can occur in the outdoors, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions.
Training will be in the classroom and in outdoor settings, so come prepared for wet, muddy, cold, or hot environments.
