BLS for Healthcare Professionals, Community CPR, CPR/AED, Basic First Aid, Advanced First Aid, Bloodborne Pathogens and Emergency Oxygen - we offer instruction in all these skills, with blended learning available for some programs.
Our mission has always been to prepare individuals to handle medical and first aid emergencies in both urban and wilderness environments. Since 2015 we’ve been providing training in CPR and First Aid for the community, for healthcare professionals and for leaders and participants in all outdoor and backcountry activities.
Now we have a new goal. During this unusual and unsettling healthcare crisis, we intend to promote health and safety for our community by suspending group trainings until there is no longer a risk of spreading COVID-19.
While we all cope with the realities of this pandemic, please remember that it’s not only your health you’re maintaining by following the prescribed measures of social distancing and sheltering in place. Following an exposure to the virus that you may not even be aware of, you can become a carrier even if you develop very mild or no symptoms at all. For a time, you will shed the virus and may infect someone who will be more vulnerable to the worst effects.
We’re finding ways to get our nature fix and maintain distance, by hiking little-used trails close to home, kayaking, and biking(avoiding trailheads and parking lots that are crowded). We’re also meeting up with hiking and climbing buddies on video chats - talking trails, peaks and routes we’ve done, and those we plan to do.
Once we’ve made it through this experience, we’ll all be jonesing to get out! It’ll be a time when we’ll want more than ever to be prepared to cope with emergencies, and Peak Skills will be there to meet your training needs.
Nature holds no malice, but she'll test your mettle from time to time.
If you're prone to put the "wild" in wilderness - hike, paddle, bike, climb - don't risk being a casualty, be a WooFA(Wilderness First Aid Provider).
