Medic Solo Courses of 2020

We know (and love) the feeling that comes with having no cell phone signal in the wilderness, but would you now how to handle a medical emergency if you couldn't dial 911, or what to do until help arrives?

If that's a 'nope' from you, then taking a disaster and wilderness first aid certification course is more than just a good idea; it could actually save a life.

Medic Solo Distaster + Wilderness Medical School is not your average first aid course. It is two full days (sometimes 3) of intense education coupled with 50% hands-on scenario training outdoors - no matter the conditions.

Medic Solo's instructors have taught over 3,000 students in 200+ classes.
