Are you in need of a First-Aid class for your job and looking for a fun way to do it? Don’t sit in a classroom all-day – spend the day in the Redwoods with Adventure Out and get that certification while learning valuable backcountry skills and compass orienteering/navigation. As society continues to awaken in our age of environmental awareness, we are venturing more and more into the wild in search of adventure, beauty, and inspiration. With this in mind, we created a simple course to help you and yours better prepare for their time in the wild. It is simple. You must prepare. You must know where you are. You must be able to protect those in your charge if harm were to befall them.
*1-Day Workshop: $150
Medical Certifications are sponsored and price-controlled by certification organizations and are not valid for any discounts and may not be paid for by discounted or promotional vouchers of any kind.
In this 100% hands on course, we will get down to the real needs of a light-weight, Leave No Trace backpacker. Discuss which gear really is worth its weight in gold in backcountry, and products to avoid.
Become efficient at the basics of Map and Compass navigation. Learn a few tricks to keep track of your location in the wilderness…and weaved throughout the day will be your First Aid training. You will leave the class with a valid First-Aid certification for professional/job training needs or just your own personal peace of mind.
