Wilderness Rescue Training was founded by professional guides to bring the highest quality wilderness medical education to the Northeastern United States. We believe that summer camp trip leaders and survivalists, hikers and hunters, anglers and paddlers, should all regularly train to hone their skills. On your course you'll learn how to improvise a splint, stop life threatening bleeding, and work as a member of a high functioning team. You'll be better prepared to act with confidence in remote and challenging environments, be it for work, or just a weekend out.
