We had a nice few days in Pyhätunturi - Lapland last week and weekend learning the wilderness first aid. Actually the content of the course was quite same as it is in Red Cross courses but noticeable was that we did not had the lessons inside; We went out!

Oh yes fun we had but also the newest knowledge about wilderness medical, first aid and helping people in remote conditions.
|WAFA - course in Pyhätunturi|
This course was organized locally by Pyhätunturin hiihtokoulu - Pyhätunturi Ski School and in cooperation with Outward Bound Finland. Professional teacher Brad came from US Colorado and had a good very long experience what he was teaching. Very good, I liked that.

Theory of Wilderness first aid came from US. Simple, easy to understand, even for me!
