This two day American Red Cross Wilderness and Remote First Aid training is different from more traditional emergency medical and first aid training in that the emphasis is on how the body works; what happens to it when it has been injured or is ill; and the basic principles behind treatment. By truly understanding basic physiology, the principles of Emergency Response, long-term patient care, and equipment improvisation, you will be more prepared to deal with non-textbook problems.
Classes will be held at the UNLV Student Recreation and Wellness Center.
Certification is good for two years. All materials and books are included. A valid CPR Certification is needed to complete this certification.
