Advanced First Aid Training Online

Articles may contain compensated links. Please read this for more information.

This online advanced first aid training is for medical emergencies. Use what you learn here in life-threatening cases and/or when you need a “quick fix”.

Taking an accredited emergency first aid training course is HIGHLY recommended. It will cover more material and you can’t beat live accredited instructor.

Advanced Online First Aid Training

Immediate First Aid

This is the 1st of the first aid training levels. They are practical skills for what to do in immediate, life-threatening situations. You should be able to perform these skills without having to reference a field guide or manual. In these situations, seconds count.

The main goal is to keep the patient alive until advanced medical care arrives. It is basic first aid training online.

It also includes how to perform a secondary exam. A secondary exam allows you to anticipate and prevent any further complications.

The following links will take you to the corresponding article.

Diagnosis and Treatments

What follows is the contents of the Diagnosis and Treatments section of Sam Fury’s Wilderness and Travel Medicine. These things are not part of Survival Fitness Plan training so they are not detailed on this website.

These subjects allow you to treat what you discovered during the secondary exam. You do not need to know the information “off-hand”.

If you know of a certain risk, you should memorize the necessary information. For example, if traveling at high altitudes or if bushwalking in hot temperatures.

Due to the large subject matter, I have made the top level categories collapsable. Click on the heading to see all the sub-categories. If it is not collapsed it is because your browser does not support it.

Wilderness and Travel Medicine Cover 300px, Survival Fitness Plan

This online wilderness advanced first aid course only covers a small part of Sam Fury’s book. But it covers the most important parts. The links in the Immediate First Aid section are what will save you and your loved one’s lives.

I want to repeat my earlier advice of taking a live first aid class. All the reading in the world can not compare to professional training. I hope you use the first aid articles on this website as a reference, not an actual training tool.

Did you find this advanced first aid training useful? If so, please share it with your friends.
