Wilderness Medical Training

Wilderness Medical Training

Do you like to go up into the mountains or down the river? Are you prepared to handle a medical emergency while in the backcountry? Being medically prepared in the backcountry is just as critical as having a map and compass! Get the proper wilderness medical training by taking a Kling Mountain Guides Medical course.  All of our medical courses come wih a certificate from the Wilderness Medical Associates (WMA).

WMA has been setting the standard in wilderness medicine and rescue training for over thirty years. WMA instructors are experienced medical practitioners as well as ski patrollers, paddlers, mountain guides, outdoor educators, and members of search and rescue teams. The instructors are professional medical practitioners not just teachers. If all you are looking for is the certificate, look elsewhere. If you are looking for the best medical courses in the region and the outdoor industry you have come to the right place.  KMG medical courses always have a Paramedic as a minimum for the lead instructor.  Instructors include y Brad Sablosky – EMT-Paramedic, Durango Fire and Rescue, Purgatory Profesional Ski Patroller and Josh Kling – EMT B, Purgatory Profesional Ski Patrol AMGA Certified Rock Guide, AMGA Certified Alpine Guide, AMGA Assistant Ski, and IFMGA Aspirant Mountain Guide.  There are no other courses in the region who have instructors with this level of combined training

What is Wilderness Medicine?

Wilderness Medicine differs significantly from standard Red Cross style courses and other programs that are oriented toward the urban environment. Our wilderness courses teach what to do with a medical emergency when help is miles away and calling 911 isn’t an option. We prepare students for emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments and improvised equipment

Gain Skills & Confidence

A WMA course will take you well beyond traditional first aid. We teach the procedures and the principles behind them. We want you to know how body systems behave, not just how to memorize signs and symptoms. Once you have taken one of our courses you will never forget what to do; you will understand what needs to be done.

Respond to Medical Emergencies

Whether you work or play in remote areas, our practical curriculum in wilderness medicine will prepare you to make good decisions in the field.
