En partenariat avec Montagne Explore, nous sommes heureux de vous offrir des formations en premiers soins accrédité par Wilderness Medical Association.

Wilderness and Remote First Aid - This advanced package is comprehensive medical training designed for remote professionals or wilderness managers venturing into remote and harsh environments.

This course explains how to handle medical emergencies when hospitals and emergency services may not be available for an extended period of time. We prepare students for emergency situations involving prolonged patient care, harsh environments, and improvised equipment.
