Ride Rasmussen Style's Wilerness First Aid is a two day course and uses the ASHI 16 hour couse for the training. American Safety Health Institute ( ASHI ) Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is designed to better prepare for injury or illness in a back country setting. When things go bad WFA responders are faced with limited recourses, preperation and assessment, caring for injuries while preventing further injurie, longer times to care for the victim, along with decisions about when and how fast to evacuate the person. This course covers many topics from injury management to sudden illness. We put a emphasis on winter time motorized situations to help our clients be confident in their back country travel experience. All Ride Rasmussen Guides are current in wilderness first aid training and bring with them a wealth of experience when it comes to back country motorized travel. Kevin Allred a former EMT on a local first responder unit will be lead instructor. Note CPR and AED course will be taught in conjunction with Wilderness first aid as it is a prerequisite to WFA.
Course begins at 9 am M.T.

Course days are 10 hour minimum.

The Ride Rasmussen Style Clinics are great for everyone, whether you want to advance your skills or just beginning to learn.

Even if you have limited time on a snowmobile, our team is here to help you have fun and stay safe.

Everyone will be challenged well beyond their limits and enjoy the adventure to the fullest. This event is a two-day clinic helping you gain confidence with the riding techniques and feel more comfortable as you traverse the backcountry.
