Wilderness First Aid - WFA (18 hours) is an entry level, 2 day first aid course for those who pursue outdoor activities. This course is ideal for backcountry users including skiers, climbers, mountaineers and hikers. Includes WFA Card.

In this course you will learn to deal with medical emergencies when help is miles away and dialing 911 is not an option. This course is the choice of many recreational skiers, climbers, mountaineers and anyone who ventures into the backcountry.  Basic first aid skills will be taught in the classroom and practiced hands-on in the outdoor environment. We will prepare you for emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments, and improvised equipment. 

Lecture and discussion, practical exercise and outdoor scenarios help students gain confidence, and encourage the development of critical decision making skills. After successful completion students are certified for 2 years by the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI), a nationally recognized organization.

Skills covered will include:

  • Patient assessment
  • Recognizing and treating shock
  • Bandaging and bleeding control
  • Splinting fractures, sprains and dislocations
