There is a homepage on the web for SOLO at www.stonehearth.com - they
run wilderness first aid courses.  Good company - if you have the time
and the money. It is a question of depth. The basic wilderness first aid
course is 16 hours and costs about $125.  The First REsponder is 80
hours - costs a lot more. The EMT gets you professional certification,
160 hours costs MUCH more.
