Wilderness First Aid Class Coming Spring of 2024!

@ The Retreat
3664 River Road, Union SC 29379

According to NOLS, "You can prepare for the unexpected with this engaging, hands-on introduction to wilderness medicine, taught over two.  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."

In rural or remote areas where EMS response can take too long, you may need to be prepared to provide extended first aid.   This wilderness first aid course provides training that may help you . You will learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for illnesses, injuries and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions until EMS arrives and can take over.

    • Step forward in an emergency with this 16 to 20-hour course designed to introduce wilderness medicine principles.

    • Learn how to improvise equipment, deal with challenging environments, and act with confidence away from medical care.

    • Engage in classroom lectures and demonstrations, combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will help to integrate your learning.


Training is conducted both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather, so come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments!
