Whether you’re hiking, biking, climbing or involved with water sports, you owe it to yourself to have some level of outdoor medical training or wilderness training. Here are a few options offered by Sierra Rescue!

- Wilderness Advanced First Aid, Our Wilderness Advanced First Aid course is designed with the outdoor professional in mind. It focuses on developing skills for treating problems outside the “golden hour” of first response. It is based on the protocols set by the Wilderness Medical Society and instruction encourage students ability to think through body systems in an effort to determine the best response to traumatic, environmental or medical situations. Classroom sessions are followed with hands on practice to integrate the information in a field setting. 100% attendance is required and there will be a night scenario included.

- Wilderness First Responder, The 9 day Wilderness First Responder Course is the most intensive course we teach. It has become the industry standard for most guide services and environmental education programs. Our course includes lots of anatomy and physiology. If one understands how the body works they can better understand what it needs during traumatic, environmental and medical emergencies. We split our classroom time with tons of scenarios, labs and a night rescue simulation. We can schedule this course for on-location training at Universities, Community Centers, or Outdoor Programs.
