Congrats to the team for completing the Wilderness First Aid Course!
WFA has never been offered before in Krabi, so we are quite proud that our team did so well. “The information was all very new, lots of new vocabulary and protocol to learn in terms of rescue and outdoor medicine” said Thunya Suwanchatree.
“We have never had first aid training specific to outdoors or specific for our work as climbing guides. This was very different from the courses we took before from the Red Cross or International Hospital, where they assume you can get the patient to a hospital quickly. We hope we never have to use the training we received, but we feel more confident now that we have it. We are very interested in taking the next level, WAFA next year” said Abdultaleb Janjit.
“It was a lot fun, the instructors were very professional and we enjoyed taking the course with our friends from other outdoor companies as well” said Anon Pingsombut.
Overall, it was a grueling 2 days, but the instructors (Simon and Add) made it fun, rewarding and challenging. We look forward to hosting another course next year! Thanks to Si and Add from WildMed, to the crew at Thai’d Up Adventures for joining us and for CMRCA for helping with the logistics to host this course here in Krabi.
