Upcoming Outdoor First Aid courses from Wilderness Development
The two days flew by; we had fun; enjoyed ourselves thoroughly especially the outdoors elements and the staged car crash; most importantly I learned more than I thought possible about 1st Aid. An excellent course led by an excellent trainer. Thank you.
