The course covers assessment techniques, CPR, wound treatment, burn treatment, allergic reactions and much more. It is a condensed version of the full two day courses taught as wilderness first aid in many states. Students need to complete CPR, First Aid, and Introduction to Emergencies as prerequisites.
