Event description

Description

Earn SOLO Wilderness First Aid and CPR certification, or renew your SOLO Wilderness First Responder* certification with Train NEK.

Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26, 2020

9:00 am – 6:00 pm

Burke Mountain Club, 368 Vermont Route 114, East Burke, VT 05832

What is Taught? The two-day SOLO Wilderness First Aid (WFA) curriculum focuses on: Prevention, Response and Assessment, Initial Life Threats, Musculoskeletal Injuries including assessment and treatment of long bone and spinal injuries, Environmental Emergencies including the layering system and warming patients, Soft Tissue Injuries and Infection, and basic Medical Emergencies.

Who is the WFA for? Geared toward people who generally adventure within one hour of definitive care (the ambulance), the WFA course is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts and trip leaders who want a basic level of backcountry first aid training for short trips with family, friends, and outdoor groups. This includes hikers, climbers, paddlers, bikers, scouts, skiers, surveyors, and archaeologists – anyone who wants to feel more independent, empowered and capable outside. It also meets American Camping Association guidelines, and can be used to recertify the SOLO Wilderness First Responder*.

What is Included? Cost of $200 includes instruction, certification fee, and training materials. Need CPR certification? We hold an optional CPR course at the end of Day One for an additional $40. Certification is good for two years, and you recertify by taking the course again.

What Should I Bring? WFA students are asked to bring warm, comfortable clothing suitable for getting dirty and appropriate for being active outside much of the day (i.e. rolling around on the ground pretending to be injured, and kneeling next to mock patients). They should also bring additional outdoor layers to use for warming and treating mock patients. Please note that lodging and meals are not included. Here is a complete packing list.

* As of January 1, 2020, only SOLO Wilderness First Responders will be able to recertify using a SOLO Wilderness First Aid course. Students with certification from Wilderness Medical Associates, Wilderness Medicine Institute, University of Vermont, Aerie Backcountry Medicine, ASHI, Wilderness Medicine Outfitters, Wilderness Medicine Training Center, and Remote Medical International should instead choose SOLO’s “Wilderness First Responder Refresher” course. SOLO does not currently have reciprocity with any other training organizations.
