About the course

The Non-Urban Occupational First Aid 3 (NUOFA 3) is a multi-level government accredited training program that meets the criteria as a 110 hour training standard. The program curriculum is a synthesis of the baseline knowledge and skills development objectives contained in the Non-Urban Emergency Care 3 (PEAK) and Occupational First Aid Level-3 (WorkSafe BC) courses and is based in part on the Outdoor Emergency Care 5th textbook (Pearson Education) and elements of PEAK’s Advanced Protocol Training Program.

The NUOFA 3 is a training program developed by PEAK and designed for professional (paid and volunteer) non-urban responders such as ski/bike patrollers, search & rescue technicians and guides who are tasked with providing advanced emergency medical care to clients and workers.

Specific NUOFA 3 program modules address the injuries and illnesses that non-urban responders are likely to encounter, conditions that are typically not addressed – or lack the necessary depth – in other first aid training programs. Some specific training subjects included in the program are: high-altitude and cold/heat related illnesses, disabled skier related injuries, paediatric emergencies, medical emergencies, treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, specific snow-sport injuries, behavioural emergencies, remote area extrications and evacuations, non-urban cardiac arrest management, and the use of the specialized equipment needed for emergency care and transportation in remote environments.

NUOFA 3 program certification is recognized by regulatory authorities throughout Canada at the ‘Advanced First Aid Training Level’ standard. These include (but not limited to) the BC Provincial Emergency Program, Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada (in-part), the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides, Canadian Ski Guides Association and the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association and many others. As well, many BC mountain resorts and/or search & rescue teams have adopted the NUOFA and NUEC training programs as their preferred first aid qualification for their membership.
