Home Upcoming Programs SOLO Wilderness First Aid

SOLO Wilderness First Aid

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!

CPR available on Saturday, after the WFA class, for an extra fee of 20.00.
