Some of the skills and training include how to asses an injured person, improvised bandaging of a wound, splinting a fracture including traction splints, dealing with head, neck and back injuries including immobilization, recognizing altitude sickness and developing a plan to rescue an injured person.

In addition to learning skills, students are faced with real life scenarios that require decision making practice. CPR is included in this course.
