First Aid Workshop
Wilderness First-aid Workshop is a one day (8 hours long) experiential learning course. The program’s goals are to equip participants with the basic knowledge and skills of Wilderness Survival, Basic Concept of Wilderness Medicine and Basic Life Support (CPR included).

The workshop is taught by WMAI certificated instructors, who share a lot of experience of patient caring and outdoor.
Suitable Audiences：Summer camp for teens/Family group/outdoor TV Reality Show/ Short Safety training for special outdoor activi- ties. This course offers some flexibility. The PAS drills and SIM can be customized according to the group, environment and activities. This is a short, fast-paced course, making long lectures difficult. We will be focusing on practice and PAS as our main format of teaching. Check with the WMAI office or the instructor when you are booking the course. We can change some topics into those more relevant to your environment.

Or they can choose to attend the standardized courses of WMAI (WFA, WAFA, WFR etc.) Graduates from these courses will get an upgraded certification, which has CPR Certification and more skills.
