wilderness toxins, and treating spine injured patients than is covered
in our Wilderness First Aid courses AND
for day and weekend trip leaders in college or university outdoor

professional guides, instructors, and expedition leaders, the

for first aid certification and includes Wilderness Medicine Training
Center adult & child CPR certification.
Medicine Training Center is the only wilderness medicine provider who
