Is it for you?
While helpful, no prior first-aid certification is needed for this course. Minimum age is 16 years.
1. Course participants opt for certification that will allow them to work in a back country setting and that is approved by the ACMG or other outdoor companies such as ski hills. This option has no pre-requisites and is standard with the course.
2. Alternatively, for those looking to additionally use the certification for a worksite, the certification can be recognized by Alberta Workplace Health and Safety. This training will then offer mobility between Alberta, BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the Yukon. To be eligible for this type of certification participants MUST provide proof of Standard First Aid certification that was taken within the year prior to the start of the Advanced Adventure Medic program. This is the exact same curriculum and exams, however the Standard First Aid pre-requisite must be met for recognition by the Alberta Workplace Health and Safety.
