First Aid Courses Thunder Bay

First Aid Courses Available in Thunder Bay

Outdoor Skills And Thrills in partnership with Overhang Adventures is excited to offer SIRUIS Wilderness Medicine first aid certification courses to the Thunder Bay region!

We are outsourcing these courses to Overhang Adventures certified and insured first aid instructors, this is not a program run by Outdoor Skills And Thrills. Amir Fishman is a highly trained and expert instructor from Overhang Adventures Inc. in Southern Ontario and we are excited to work together and help make these courses more readily available in Northwestern Ontario.

 

Wilderness First Aid – 20 hours

This is a practical course designed for individuals participating in outdoor activities or working on remote sites within hours of medical assistance. This course provides participants with an introduction to wilderness first aid, with an emphasis on practical skills, decision making and dealing with environmental conditions. The Wilderness First Aid course may be modified to accommodate CPR training and other elements of wilderness first aid, outdoor safety or leadership training.

Basically, if you play outside with friends and want to know the basics of how to take care of someone if they get hurt, this course is for you. It gives you the knowledge to deal with many situations, but does not cover any particular topic in great detail. If you’re looking to travel more remotely where you might have to take care of someone for a day or more or are planning on leading groups, the 40-hour or 80-hour course is recommended.
