Emergencies can occur at any time. Do you have the training and skills to manage the unknown?
TRAINING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
For many years, traditional medical training was strictly focused on urban and suburban settings, leaving adventurous souls under-prepared and ill-equipped to effectively manage extended patient contact.
Realizing that many injuries and illnesses occur when separated from definitive care by time, distance, and circumstances, Off Grid Medic was founded to increase the chances of survival through education and training.
