The Introductory Wilderness First Aid course is a dedicated BCMC course offered through the Canada West Mountain School -- this course is offered to BCMC Members outside of the normal CWMS schedule. The course is taught by instructors who are active outdoor enthusiasts and consists of 2 full weekend days of theory and real-life simulations in an outdoor environment. It's a must for anyone active in the outdoor.

The course goes rain or shine so please dress appropriately and bring your lunch for both weekend days.
