This course is approved by WorkSafe BC as equivalent to Occupational First Aid Level 1 (OFA-1)

This fun, hands-on course covers the essential first aid skills required for planning, preventing injury, promoting safety, and responding to emergencies in remote and wilderness environments. The course carries a Red Cross certification for 3 years.

All of our instructors have professional backgrounds and experience, including Canadian Rangers, Paramedics, Combat Medics, Firefighters, and Nurses.

The course begins on Friday evening at 6pm at our Training Centre in Metchosin, and then moves into the Matheson Lake Regional Park for Saturday and Sunday. Due to the fairly physical (and fun!) nature of the course, it requires a moderate level of fitness.

This course includes the Red Cross manual.

Certificate is valid for 3 years.

Please note:

  • All participants must bring government-issued photo I.D. to the course.
  • This course requires practicing and evaluating hands-on skills with other people. All participants will be wearing masks, face shields and gloves. If you are not comfortable with this level of interaction, please consider signing up with a partner from your bubble, or not registering for this course.
  • This course will take place outdoors and is fairly physical and requires bending, kneeling and physical contact with other people, so please dress appropriately.
  • Once you have registered, we will send you a list of recommended gear to bring with you.
