The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course –

was created for those who work or recreate in the wilderness on a short-term basis.  If you take short trips, savor outdoor activities while staying reasonably close to medical resources, work at outdoor camps, or just want a solid introduction to wilderness medicine this is the course for you.    The WFA training course focuses on prevention, assessment, and treatment of an ill or injured person in any environment where definitive care by a physician and/or rapid transport is not readily available.

Students will develop the hands-on skills and practical knowledge necessary for medical decision-making in remote wilderness locations. We focus on teaching students to assess situations, improvise solutions using limited available resources to stabilize the patients until qualified resources arrive.

 

This 16-hour course can be structured to the specific needs of your group. It can be held at our training facility, or we can come to you. Give us a call to further discuss your needs.
