| Custom Course Bookings |
Do you have a group of friends who you would like to take a course with specifically?
Are you an employer who has employees working in remote settings? Do they use ATV’s and have the potential for extended situations in the field due to restricted access?
Do you do cool things with other cool people and want to cover content specifically to your activity?
Let us build a custom course that:
• Has focused attention to the work or activity you participate in
• Acknowledges the need for specific conversations around workplace procedures or activity specific variables
• Is scheduled around your calendar of availability
• Is closed to the general public therefore it’s all about you
• Is at your choice of location or we decide for you
Non Certification Custom Courses
First Aid skills/knowledge are highly perishable skills. Not everyone needs to (or can) take a full certification course... but everyone should know first aid!
Customized training lets you choose content that is important to your activity/work in a timeframe that you can commit to. This may also be beneficial to high risk groups/remote workplaces that want to maintain their skillset or who want to advance their scenario training.
The only limitation we have for setting a schedule for custom courses is that we meet the required hours for those pursuing certification. Otherwise there are no restrictions. Consider your options and provide us suggestions:
• Some evening sessions prior to full field days
• Scheduled over an extended period of time instead of back-to-back days
• Overnight trips allow for longer days but less days overall
• Holidays/long weekends
To book your custom course, please contact us directly to schedule your training!
“Back40’s Wilderness first Aid should be required for all residents of Saskatchewan! If you work in remote areas, camp, fish, hunt, farm, hike, bike, walk n the city or drive on grid roads, you will find this training relevant, and potentially life saving. Typical first aid is a lot of reading, not much practice and often leaves you feeling more nervous than before. Back40’s Wilderness First Aid spends the majority of your time actually practicing skills, which not only benefits your skill level by being able to do it better, but it also boosts your confidence in your ability to apply first aid.”

“…we do not only do it for ourselves, but for others that also enjoy the backcountry. It’s hard to understand the importance until you or your friend are the ones in need of help and find yourself questioning your actions…”

“…Highlights for me were the authentic and sustained scenarios, repetition of the full assessment sequence and the forms. I will be putting waterproofed copies in my pack!…”

“This was by far the BEST first aid course I have ever taken in my life. The way she builds her scenarios are unique and realistic. And having to do this course outside made this even more lifelike…”
