Given our location in South East Asia it is extremely difficult to obtain this certification without traveling to Europe or the Untied States. We are fortunate to have the opportunity here in Chiang Mai for such training.
This 3-day course is the most thorough and relevant first- aid training for outdoor enthusiasts or anyone spending time in the backcountry. Please note, the course will be taught in English, but will be facilitated at a slower rate for Native Thai speakers.
The course will cover a wide range of topics including: Patient Assessment System; CPR; Circulatory System; Nervous System; Respiratory System; Fractures, Stable Injuries; Splints 1-Extremities; Hypothermia; Hyperthermia and Heat Illness; Near Drowning; Lightning Injuries; Wounds and Burns; Anaphylaxis; Lifting, Moving Extrication; Patient Carries; Backcountry Medicine
After successfully completing the WFA course participants will be certified internationally in both Wilderness First Aid and Adult CPR. Certification is valid for 3 years.
