Wilderness Survival—New!
Apr 2, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. $60
Dan Nash, owner of Satori Adventures and Expeditions, teaches a condensed version of the general two day wilderness first aid class that is centered around the most common injuries and medical issues that may arise while in the wilderness. Unlike many other wilderness first aid classes, Dan takes this class a step further in providing practical exercises that not only cover the diagnosing and treating of patients but also the evacuation if necessary. Students will need to bring their first aid kit, along with other items that they would normally take with them on a day trip, such as trekking poles, rain gear, survival kit, water, extra clothing, etc. The class will be 8 hours in length and consist of 5 hours of classroom and 3 hours of practical exercises. During the practical exercises, you will use the normal items that you have with you to build litters, splints, etc. and learn to extract patients. UACCB Nursing Allied Health Bldg, 902.
