San Antonio Wilderness Herbal First Responder Certification 2020
The Wilderness Herbal First Responder is 92 hours of Wilderness First Aid combined with remote and post-disaster herbalism. The WHFR also includes a 40-hour WFA certification card through the Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI), CPR certification, and a Wilderness First Responder certification through The Human Path. This is the merging of the worlds of remote or post-disaster medicine ("ditch medicine") with the world of herbalism and includes most of the herbal information and all (plus some) of the hands-on experience of the Herbal Medic Basic course. PLUS, this course includes all of the wilderness first responder curriculum that allows the student to be a competent first aid provider right from the get-go in the case of illness, injury or even chronic health issue. FULL COURSE DESCRIPTION IS BELOW. This course is geared toward a number of different types of students: • The outdoor enthusiast, camp counselor, outdoor recreational employee who wants in-depth training on injury and illness management in the field. • The camper, hiker or rock-climber who wants more much more intensive learning, geared toward outdoor environments, than a standard first aid course. • The prepper (disaster preparedness) who wants to be self-sufficient medically and not even necessarily reliant on orthodox pharmaceuticals. • The herbalist who wants higher intensity training across the board from wilderness first aid to herbal medicine in a remote environment. • The emergency medicine professional who wants to expand his/her horizons into indefinite medical care that includes botanical medicines (field herbalism).
