It is always a good time to start preparing for your unit’s next outdoor adventures. At least one member of each unit/crew should be certified in WFA and CPR. It is also important to have this training when doing any treks or outings that are in the back country and similar situations where professional emergency care is more than 30 minutes away.

The Wilderness First Aid course is a 16 hour course ($75 p/person) and the WFA Refresher is an 8 hour course, designed to introduce you to the concepts of medical care in a wilderness setting. The course focuses on skills, practice and realistic scenarios through hands-on skills and simulations to teach you scene and patient assessment, basic and advanced first aid techniques, CPR, AED and basic life support skills, minor trauma, environmental topics, allergic and toxic reactions, wound care, bandaging (classic and improvised), bone and joint injuries, splinting, head and spine injuries (assessment and decision making) and other “common” medical emergencies. Included in this course, you will also receive your basic CPR, AED and an introduction to O2 use as well.

WFA and CPR training is ideal for all Boy Scouts and adult leaders. It gives you the skills and confidence you need to respond to an emergency when help may be delayed.  Youth course participants must be at least 14-years-old, a First Class Scout and have completed their First Aid Merit Badge. Due to the serious nature of the course and scenarios a Scout needs to have a mature attitude. Participants will receive: WFA Field Guide Book, Certification Card and Patch upon completion of course. This course is good for two years. WFA Refresher courses are 8 hours long. The cost is $50.00, when you register and must be done before your current certification expires. If you currently have a WFA Field Guide Book then the cost is $30.00. This course is being done through the Emergency Care and Safety Institute and/or American Safety and Health Institute.
