A Weekend Course in First Aid for the outdoors

Wilderness First Aid is hands down the First Aid course any outdoor enthusiast should do. 

IMG has since 2015 had close ties with NOLS USA providing 10 day Wilderness First Responder courses to outdoor professionals. In celebration of 5 years of exceptional NOLS quality in teaching first-aid in Iceland, IMG now offers a compact 2,5 day version of the course designed for the public. 

It does not matter what your outdoor addiction is, First Aid skills is an essential skill to have and the Wilderness First Aid Course is designed to deliver those skills in a useful outdoor context when professional help is more than just a phone call away.   

The NOLS instructors have already made a name for themselves in Iceland as exceptional in their ability to deliver first aid skill in a fun, understandable and logical way.  

The course is designed for enthusiastic amateurs wanting practical skills. Guides, other professionals and those going on longer expeditions in remote areas should look at the Wilderness First Responder as a more comprehensive course.
