About the Event

Accidents happen. People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? By learning a few basic skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one - and maybe even save a life.   

Wilderness First Aid (WFA) and Wilderness First Responder (WFR) are hands-on trainings designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts, and individuals working in remote locations. WFA is a 16-hour (two day) course that focuses on the basic skills of: response and assessment, musculoskeletal and soft tissue injuries, environmental and medical emergencies, survival skills, and more.  

Upon completion, you will receive a SOLO WFA certification (valid for two years) or, if you are recertifying your SOLO WFR, that remains valid for another 3 years.

This two-part class runs 8:00 am to 5:00 pm both Saturday and Sunday. You must have a current CPR/AED for WFA/WFR to be valid. CPR/AED can be added for $45. Or, if you would like the American Heart Association BLS certification which covers CPR/AED for adult, child, and infant, this can be added for $75.   

Learning takes place in an outdoor setting. Come prepared for any weather. Early spring can bring warm sunshine or cold wet conditions. Primitive camping is free on-site or you can stay at a hotel in town.
