How Can We Help You?


As the teaching vendor for our own Wilderness First Aid Program, Rocky Mountain Adventure Medicine has consistently provided our students with the highest levels of quality instruction and professionalism.
Robin Executive Director, Calgary Area Outdoor Council
I never got the chance to thank you personally at the end of the Wilderness First Aid Course that I took last week but I would like to thank you now. I enjoyed the course and liked your “laid back” approach to teaching the course, your stories about helping people in emergency situations will forever be imprinted on my brain.
