Emergency Medicine & First Aid

Emergency medicine courses are available for the workplace, the backcountry, and the street. We are proud to showcase our affiliate relationship with NOLS Wilderness Medicine Institute.

Landmark Outdoor Educator Semester

The Landmark Outdoor Educator Semester is a combined course experience taught May-June each year for rising professionals in the outdoor education and recreation fields. This combination of nationally recognized certification trainings offers students an opportunity to make themselves marketable in the outdoor community, building a resume founded in national standards.  Training does not substitute for experience, however training helps folks gain the work that furthers their outdoor professional career.

Epinephrine Administration

This 4-hour workshop meets the standards for layperson training in recognizing and treating life-threatening allergic reactions. Students have the opportunity to practice epi administration with saline and needles.

EMT Refresher Training Program

At the end of the course we'll provide an hourly breakdown of the components you've passed so you can submit them to the National Registry for approval, along with the rest of your continuing education requirements. See NREMT.org for full details.

Emergency Medical Technician Intensive

Earn your credentials in three weeks with our EMT Intensive course.

Landmark Learning is the leading private teaching institution approved by the N.C. Office of Emergency Medical Services to teach the EMT-Basic curriculum - and the top provider to offer it in this intensive format.

Our classes meet all day every day for three consecutive weeks. During the evenings of the third week, you will attend 12 hours of clinical experience working with ambulance crews and emergency room personnel who are affiliated with our program.

Community Relief Medic

In 2003 Landmark Learning and CORE Expeditions created the Ecuadorian Amazon and Andes Relief Medic Program, initially named Mission Medic. We had traveled extensively whitewater kayaking, teaching wilderness medicine and river rescue skills to local guides. We wanted to do more for the indigenous communities of Ecuador, connecting our wilderness medicine students to medical brigades supported by the Ecuadorian Ministry of Health.

Basic First Aid

ASHI Basic First Aid was created to help students develop basic first aid knowledge, skills, and the confidence to respond. The program is an excellent choice for both the community and workplace setting, and is consistent with recommendations of the 2010 National First Aid Science Advisory Board and OSHA’s best practices for first aid training programs in the workplace.

CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)

ASHI CPR and AED is a combined CPR and AED program designed specifically for laypeople. The program is an excellent choice for both the community and workplace setting, and is based upon the 2015 International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) Science with Treatment Recommendations (CoSTR) and other evidence-based treatment recommendations.

ASHI Instructor Development Course, Basic First Aid and CPR

Our Training Center prerequisites for this course include current minimum certification as an EMT and current certification in a professional level CPR program. A skills test and written examination are given at the beginning of this course to verify eligibility.

Basic Life Support

ASHI Basic Life Support (formerly CPR Pro for the Professional Rescuer )has been approved for training for Emergency Medical Services personnel and is accepted by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).
