“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.”
