Taught just a 25 minute drive from area hot springs and the historic town of Las Vegas, New Mexico, the Wilderness First Aid 3-day certification course is a great place to start for anyone who wants to be much more medically self-sufficient.  The usage for this material ranges from just being able to take care of your own family in a home emergency, to backpacking, hiking or
camping trips, to living in a more rural area, to being stranded in a remote location, to a hurricane Katrina (or worse) situation.
This is a 24 hour course taught over 3 days (8 hours per day) and includes both a conventional 16-Hour Wilderness First Aid (WFA) Certification through Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI) as well as more than 8 hours of herbal first aid training. Spirit Trainings of Las Vegas, NM is hosting this course taught by Sam Coffman.
Herbal First Aid information is integrated into the curriculum every day in order to create a holistic model of remote or post-disaster care that emphasizes the essentials of first aid care while also introducing fundamental plant-medicine concepts that apply to austere or post-disaster environments.
