Wilderness First Aid - 2023

Event Details

Wilderness First Aid & CPR-AED


WHAT IS WILDERNESS FIRST AID?  Wilderness first aid (WFA) is a course for everyone planning a remote high adventure ranging from lay responders to medical professionals. It focuses on prevention, assessment, and treatment for an ill or injured person in a remote environment where definitive care by a physician and/or rapid transport is not readily available. This is defined as being an hour or more away from advanced care.

This weekend class prepares you to handle serious back-country emergencies.  Wilderness First Aid is a comprehensive series of lessons in how to react and respond in remote, life threatening situations.  Lots of activity and hands-on work in classroom and outdoor scenarios keeps it fun!

WHO IS IT FOR?  Scout leaders and older Scouts with some First Aid training and a serious interest in advancing their knowledge. You should be familiar with the material in the First Aid Merit Badge pamphlet. WFA certification is required for the BSA High Adventure bases.

COST:  $175.00 course fee, course materials, certificate, snacks, meals (Saturday lunch & dinner, Sunday lunch). There will be no refunds.

SCHEDULE:  WFA is a 16 hour course with an integrated 3 hour CPR course (total 19 hours). The general schedule is Saturday 8:00 am to 8:00 pm and Sunday 9:00 am to 5:30 pm.  Friday and Saturday night housing is available upon request. With overnight stay, Sunday Breakfast is continental. 

MINIMUM AGE:  Course participants must be at least 14 years old.

CERTIFICATE:  Participants will receive a two (2) year Emergency Care and Safety Institute certification upon completion.

DEADLINE:  Registrations must be received and paid in full no later than one week before the course. Spots will go fast so register early as spaces are limited.
