Course Description

L.L.Bean has partnered with Wilderness Medical Associates, a respected leader in wilderness medical education since 1981, to bring you this two-day (16-hour) introductory course on the basics of wilderness medical treatment and rescue. Both medical professionals and active outdoor enthusiasts without medical training can benefit from this instruction and certification in Wilderness First Aid.

Day one begins with an overview of general wilderness first-aid concepts. You'll be taught how to assess a patient and learn about the circulatory and respiratory systems, controlling infections, CPR and basic life-support methods. You'll also learn to recognize fractures and dislocations, plus methods for stabilizing and splinting these injuries.

Day two covers how to handle a wide range of potential hazards, including: hypothermia, hyperthermia and heat illness; near drowning; frostbite and other cold injuries; lightning and electrical injuries; wounds and burns; anaphylaxis. You'll receive step-by-step instruction, plus hands-on practice in patient-rescue techniques, including improvised carries and further assessments.

All necessary equipment, including course materials, is provided. Successful completion of the course requires full attendance and satisfactory performance on written and practical quizzes. Itinerary subject to change at instructors' discretion.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

**Course materials will be emailed to you after registration.
