This program is open to the public, organizations, and businesses. Although it is friendly to the scouting organizations this is not a "kid class". All first aid is taught at the adult and teen level. We have received compliments from participants of all ages and backgrounds. Parents and leaders are asked to insure that participants are ready for this level of training. We recommend participants be at least 14 years old for the Advanced/Wilderness First Aid.
