COURSE DESCRIPTION

Wilderness First Aid (WFA) $200: The two-day SOLO Wilderness First Aid course is ideal for outdoor professionals and enthusiasts who regularly spend time in the outdoors one hour or more from definitive care. This includes hikers, climbers, paddlers, bikers, skiers, scouts, surveyors, and archaeologists – anyone who wants to feel more independent, empowered and capable during outdoor pursuits*.

*Those who regularly engage in more challenging or remote outings are encouraged to take the SOLO Wilderness First Responder course.

WHAT IS INCLUDED? Course fee of $200 includes instruction, training materials, and SOLO WFA certification fee. Certification is good for two years, and you recertify by taking the course again. The WFA can also be used to recertify the SOLO Wilderness First Responder. SOLO Basic CPR will be offered as an optional adjunct at the end of Day One for an additional $40. You can register for CPR here, or pay in person at the class.

WHAT IS TAUGHT? The WFA curriculum focuses on: Prevention, Response and Assessment, Initial Life Threats, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies including the layering system and warming patients, Soft Tissue Injuries and Infection, and Medical Emergencies.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING? WFA students are asked to bring 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 building splints, etc. Lodging and meals are not included. A complete packing list and directions are sent to students upon registration.

Thank you!
