SOLO Wilderness First Aid
Wilderness First Aid (WFA) creates a solid foundation in the basics of backcountry medical care. It is 16 hours long (two days), and focuses on the basic skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies.
This is an incredible course! Not only will you gain the skills you need to care for people in a remote location. But, you will have a fantastic time…it is fun and fast-moving. There will be a mix of classroom sessions, practice sessions and outdoor scenarios. Check out some of the program reviews!
