Whether you venture into your local parks or deep into the backcountry, having a solid foundation of first aid skills is necessary. REI is collaborating with the Wilderness Medicine Institute of NOLS to offer a comprehensive two day course that will teach you the wilderness medicine skills you need to recreate with confidence in the backcountry.
REI and WMI can get you Wilderness First Aid certified on our two-day, 16 hour course. We’ll learn how to administer first aid in a wilderness context and cover a variety of topics from blisters and sprains to more serious injuries.
When you really want to get to know a place, travelling by foot is one of the best ways to go. Whether you’re trekking in Nepal, or walking the historic Appalachian Trail, hiking brings you closer to the land and its people.
