Wilderness Safety Institute, LLC specializes in providing professional training in Wilderness Medicine, to include Wilderness Life Support®/Wilderness First Aid, and Basic Wilderness Life Support®/Wilderness First Responder courses. We also present lectures and classes on various subjects pertaining to wilderness safety, essential outdoor skills ("survival skills"), and will be launching our first online course, Emergency Communications for the Outdoor Enthusiast© in 2019.
Our instructors focus on the “Why?” that’s usually ignored in most courses to emphasize true learning of the core concepts, instead of just covering the material needed to receive a certification card.
Classes are offered to the general public, private organizations, all levels of government, and to anyone looking for information & training on being better prepared for most outdoor situations.
We are located in the Texas Hill Country, between Austin and San Antonio, and offer mobile training (we come to your location) in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Oklahoma, California, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and other states by request. Please contact us for details or to schedule your next class.
All of our instructors are seasoned professionals, with real-world experience in Military, Emergency Medical Services, Search & Rescue, and Law Enforcement. We train and prepare our clients for real-world situations based on our own experiences along with proven best practices and science.

Kevin's real world experience was very obvious. He didn't kill us with war stories, but used them judiciously to underscore a point. He had great patience with me on the hands-on portion of the program. Kudos!!Jeff U. Wilderness First Aid Course
Excellent course. Am very pleased and feel much more confident. Kevin did an excellent job. He is extremely knowledgeable and was very patient working with the students. I will definitely be taking other courses.Bob R. Wilderness First Aid Course
Kevin, you hold a great class. I appreciate everything you shared in your Hemorrhage Control class. Invaluable to an average citizen like myself that has no first aid training. And thank you for your military service. Don't know if people say that enough, but I very much appreciate it.Chris C. Hemorrhage Control Course
Class was outstanding. More information than any first aid class we've ever taken. Kevin is extremely knowledgeable, approachable and a good humored teacher. Thank you again!Raul Basic First Aid Course
