Wilderness First-Aid/Survival Course
Hi CT,

Does anyone have a good suggestion or experience they would care to share on a wilderness first-aid/survival course they've taken? I live in Kamloops so would prefer something local but not hesitant to travel either. Strangely enough St. Johns does not offer such a course here anyways...

Highly recommended. Worth travelling for.

Canadian Red Cross has a three day course leading to Wilderness First Aide Level 1 certification - if you can convince a few hikers/snowmobilers/skiiers etc. around Kamloops, I'm sure they could do something local. By volunteering as a victim you can refresh and update your skills. This from a thread I recently posted:

I'll second Kid C to recommend Slipstream. Their instructors are fantastic. Of the three wilderness first aid courses that I have taken through them, all were top notch.

They will tailor a course to your groups needs. For example, my local Section of the ACC had a custom course that allowed us to do two, three day weekends, rather than a one week long course, which meant I didn't have to take a whole week off work. As well, Slipstream gave us a group discount and our Section paid half of every club participant's course fee, so there are ways to cut costs through group efforts. My last course cost me $200 after our group rate and ACC rebate.

If you are lucky enough to get an instructor, or can request her services, I would especially recommend a Japanese woman named Yukie Hayashi. She took our group of twenty and asked each persons name and then repeated them back, without fault and remembered each name for the rest of the course. She kept our group excited and working at our max the whole time.

If you are in need of effective first aid training, then you must choose the best of the best. It is your duty to make sure that the workplace is safe and your employees are ready to take appropriate steps to save lives if a life-threatening situation occurs.You can try Rescue One they take pride as one of the biggest organizations when it comes to giving the life safety training in the Mid-Atlantic region.:D
