SOLO Advanced Wildeness First Aid
Advanced Wilderness First Aid (AWFA) is an intensive 4-day course that provides in-depth information on medical and environmental emergencies, alongside hands-on practice of backcountry first aid skills. Students learn from both in the classroom and in-field scenarios.
With an emphasis on leadership, students learn to confidently take control of medical situations. Over 4-days students learn patient assessment, injury management, and other necessary outdoor skills. This class goes into greater depth of the basic first aid subjects while emphasizing leadership skills. AWFA presents new skills such as litter packaging and traction splinting.
Our four pronged approach includes classroom, skills practice, scenarios, and testing.
