The Hutong, in conjunction with Wilderness Medical Association International (WMAI), is proud to host Wilderness Advanced First Aid Training in Beijing for those seeking certification. 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 staff member 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.
For your own safety, skill development and 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.
