Event description

Description

Join Train NEK and North Branch Nature Center as you learn the basics of how to prevent, recognize, and treat common injuries and life threatening emergencies. The two-day SOLO Wilderness First Aid course is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts who engage in outdoor trips one hour or more from definitive care, including hikers, climbers, skiers, paddlers, bikers, camp counselors, scouts, and parents of active children – anyone who wants to feel more independent, empowered and capable during outdoor pursuits. It also meets American Camping Association guidelines.

The WFA tuition of $200 includes instruction, training materials, and certification fees. (SOLO Basic CPR is available as an optional adjunct, taught at the end of Day One for an additional $40.) The WFA also serves to recertify SOLO Wilderness First Responders, for an additional fee payable directly to SOLO following the course.

The WFA curriculum focuses on: Prevention, Response and Assessment, Initial Life Threats, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies. WFA certification is good for two years; you recertify by taking the course again. The WFA can also be used to recertify the Wilderness First Responder.

WFA students are asked to bring clothing suitable for getting dirty and appropriate to being active outside much of the day, in any weather (you’ll be rolling around on the ground pretending to be injured, and kneeling next to mock patients). Please also bring EXTRA outdoor layers which you don't mind getting stretched and dirty, you will use to build splints, warm up patients, etc. Please note that meals are not included.

A complete packing list, directions, and further details will be sent to students upon registration.
