Tactical Environmental Medicine, It Just Makes Sense
The weather and the environment have impacted military operations, recreation, and anyone that makes their living outside since the beginning of time. The mountains are especially brutal and our Tactical and Environmental Medicine courses are designed to reduce or mitigate your risk.
The High Altitude/Cold Illnesses and Injuries course blends practical operational considerations with scientific research. Our course focuses on acclimatization strategies, physiology, and cold related injuries. It is a “must have” for anyone that operates at altitude. Topics include:
- Performance at Altitude
- Physiological Changes at Altitude
- Prevention of Acute Mountain Sickness
- Nutrition at High Altitude – Special Considerations
- Thermal Injuries in Cold Environment
- Altitude acclimatization techniques
- Clothing and equipment requirements
Our 2 day Wilderness and Remote First Aid course focuses on assessment, treatment, and evacuation of casualties from a remote/wilderness environment. This is a Red Cross course with a 2-year certification. We developed this course to meet that standard for wilderness professionals but we feel that anyone that works or plays in the outdoors would benefit from this course.
Our 5 day Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA) provides you with the skills to respond to emergencies in areas that do not have immediate access to emergency medical services. This course is an advanced version of our Wilderness and Remote First Aid course. Upon completion of this course, you will receive a 2-year Emergency Care and Safety Institute certification.
