MTM has collaborated with Wilderness Medicine Institute – subsidiary of National Outdoor Leadership School – NOLS (US) to bring you the first of its kind emergency first-aid program for motorcycle travellers
*This program is a not-for-profit effort to enable better equipped travellers in the community*

The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course will help you prepare for the unexpected. This fast paced, hands-on training is designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts and individuals working in remote locations. It will introduce you to caring for people who become ill or injured far from definitive medical care.
