The Remote Responder program is a great introduction to Wilderness First Aid. Designed for the weekend warrior who recreates with their friends in activities such as mountain biking and sport climbing. It is taught entirely from the perspective of delayed help and enables the participant to perform valuable treatments that will lessen the severity of injuries and contribute to speedier recovery times in the case of an unfortunate incident.
Being fully recognised as meeting the standards set down by the Alberta Workplace Health and Safety for "standard" first aid, it is also a valuable workplace qualification for those working in more remote environments.
