Wilderness First Aid on Vancouver Island
We have a perfect venue to offer Wilderness First Aid Courses: Open space, inside and out, we are on the water and we love camp fires. We know the hassle and expense of attending Wilderness First Aid courses, so we teamed up with Dave at Ridge Wilderness Adventures to offer awesome WFA training and the whole course stays in one place. Of course, we are only 5 minutes from bakeries in Cowichan Bay or pubs in Duncan..so it is the best of both worlds!

When each day is done, you can hop in the outdoor sauna, crawl into your sleeping bag and have sweet dreams of your next wilderness first aid adventure.
Why Wilderness First Aid?
I first discovered Wilderness First Aid training when I started my canoe guiding business: Gumboot Guiding Canoe Tours. I enrolled and completed an AWFA course and I fell in love with Wilderness First Aid: the fun, adventure and learning were amazing; the confidence it gave me was totally awesome. Most importantly, it helped me realize just how difficult things can be when there is no 911 to call. AWFA teaches more than first aid: it helps prepare people to plan trips and manage risks to avoid the incidents in the first place.
An intensive, well taught 40 hour Advanced Wilderness First Aid is totally adequate to satisfy most employers, insurers and clients. Like everything: it really depends on the people. The better your instructor, the more you will learn. That is why I teamed up with Dave at Ridge Wilderness Adventures to offer awesome Advanced Wilderness First Aid at Affinity.
