Event Details

Join Train NEK and Onion River Outdoors at Norwich University's Shaw Outdoor Center in Northfield, VT to earn your SOLO Wilderness First Aid or to renew your SOLO Wilderness First Responder certification.

Saturday and Sunday, April 4 AND 5, 2020, 9:00 AM TO 6:00 PM, $200, OR $240 with CPR.

TWO WAYS TO REGISTER:

MAIL A NOTE WITH COURSE TITLE AND DATES, STUDENT NAME PHONE NUMBER AND EMAIL ADDRESS, AND A CHECK FOR $200 ($240 WITH CPR) TO TRAIN NEK, PO BOX 132, PEACHAM, VT 05862

OR

REGISTER THROUGH EVENTBRITE (ADDITIONAL EVENTBRITE FEE APPLIES).

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The two-day SOLO Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts and trip leaders who want a basic level of first aid training for short trips outdoors with family, friends, and outdoor groups. This includes hikers, climbers, paddlers, bikers, skiers, scouts, surveyors, and archaeologists – anyone who wants to feel more independent, empowered and capable in the outdoors. It also meets ACA guidelines. (Those who regularly engage in more challenging or remote outings, particularly if they are responsible for others in those settings, 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 SOLO 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 including certification and materials.

WHAT IS TAUGHT? The WFA curriculum focuses on: Prevention, Response and Assessment, Initial Life Threats, Musculoskeletal Injuries including splinting and treating for spinal 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 warming and treating patients. Lodging and meals are not included. A complete packing list and directions are sent to students upon registration.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!
