Wilderness First Aid is the assessment and treatment of injuries and illness that are experienced in remote locations, typically over an hour from health care services. Time is the essential element distinguishing Wilderness First Aid from basic first aid courses.
You will learn how to identify signs and symptoms of common backcountry injuries and illnesses, determine whether they are serious issues that require emergent action or can be dealt with locally.
Please Note: A current Adult CPR/AED Certification is required for course completion, and must be completed separately from the WFA Course.
