Course Description: Basic Wilderness Life Support

Basic Wilderness Life Support (BWLS) is a wilderness first responder course designed to provide an individual with an in-depth knowledge of wilderness medicine and the basic skills to treat the most common injuries and illnesses encountered in the wilderness. This course is appropriate for those who spend a lot of time in remote locations - professionally or recreationally. The methods and protocols presented in this class follow the Wilderness Medical Society (WMS) guidelines for a 74 hour certification and are specific to a wilderness setting. The WMS defines wilderness as a remote geographical location more than one hour from definitive care. Completion of BWLS requires an American Heart Association Basic Life Support certification that is included in this class. Class will meet indoors and out.
