SOLO Wilderness First Aid

Saturday, November 20 — Sunday, November 21

9am – 5pm | Ages 13+

Wilderness First Aid (WFA) creates a solid foundation in the basics of backcountry medical care. This sixteen hour course spans two days and focuses on basic skills necessary for responding to emergencies in the backcountry. We’ll cover response and assessment, survival skills, musculoskeletal injuries, soft tissue injuries, environmental emergencies, and medical emergencies.

This is an incredible course! Not only will you gain the skills you need to care for people remote locations, you will also have a fantastic time learning!

Fun and fast-moving, there will be a mix of classroom sessions, practice sessions and outdoor scenarios. Check out some of North Star Adventure’s program reviews!

Instructor Nancy Zane has more than 25 years of experience working, teaching, and playing in remote environments with youth and adults. In addition to teaching emergency medicine and the EMT program at the Waldo County Tech Center she is the founder of North Star Adventures where she guides private and public expeditions, day trips, and offers SOLO certification in wilderness medicine.

Course includes: Materials for practice scenarios, WFA book, WFA map, 2 year certification and instruction.

There is space for camping on Friday and Saturday nights for those traveling from a distance.

I had so much fun and learned a lot. The environment was easy going and friendly. I felt comfortable making mistakes and trying again until I felt more confident!
