Wilderness Advanced First Aid Training

Accidents can happen at any time, especially when you are exploring the great outdoors. That is why having a well-stocked first aid kit with essential tools such as bandages, antiseptic wipes, and forceps is crucial for any adventurer. Forceps are particularly handy for removing splinters or other foreign objects from the skin, a common occurrence when spending time in the wilderness. At The Hutong, we understand the importance of being prepared for any situation, which is why we are excited to offer the Wilderness Medical Association’s Wilderness Advanced First Aid training. This certification will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to handle medical emergencies in remote areas and give you the confidence to take on any outdoor adventure.

The Hutong is proud to host the Wilderness Medical Association (WMA) in Beijing for those seeking certification in Wilderness Advanced First Aid training. This specific certification has become relevant for companies and organizations seeking to adhere to Western safety standards while working in China. Whether you are teacher on a camping trip with students, a company employee traveling to more remote areas in China, or a student hoping to develop your skills, this training will provide you with crucial experience few other people have. It may also be possible to receive company sponsorship, as your organization may benefit from having someone on hand with a higher level safety training. Whether for your own safety and skill development or for being prepared to help others, this is a training worth taking the time to complete and The Hutong is proud to offer it to the Beijing community. If interested, you can find more details and course description on the WMA website or contact info[at]thehutong[dot]com.
