Wilderness Medicine Courses

Medical skills for individuals working or playing in a remote or wilderness settings

The North Cascades Environmental Learning Center holds a variety of wilderness first aid courses each year. From 2-day recertification classes to 26-day Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), these classes provide hands-on training and practical experience to prepare for the unexpected challenges of traveling in the wilderness.

Registration includes all course materials and instruction. For most courses lodging and meals is included in the registration fee. Those courses with a "commuter" option for registration, allow you to opt out of lodging and meals.

The majority of the first aid courses held at the Environmental Learning Center are scheduled in the winter months, between December and March.

Note: Some courses are offered in the "hybrid" format have online coursework to be completed before the class, allowing for shortened in-person class work.
