2021 HYBRID/In-Person WFA/CPR - May 8
WILDERNESS FIRST AID and CPR/AED HYBRID Online & In Person
WFA is recommended for BSA activities in remote back country settings where emergency response is more than 30 minutes away and meets BSA National High Adventure requirement (Philmont, Summit, Canoe Base & Sea Base) to have at least one trek participant “trained and certified in Wilderness 1st Aid.”
Due to time constraints and the need to rapidly set up another course for Spring 2021, we will be offering a hybrid course. Instead of the usual 2 day of instructions and skills course, participants will be able to take the instructive portion on-line and complete the skills part in-person at the Council Office on May 8. CPR/AED will also be offered on May 8 for those who need it.
Here is how it works:
1. Sign up on Black Pug. Note that WFA and CPR/AED are separate.
2. We will need a unique e-mail address for each participant. This can be that of a youth or one of the parents. We can not use the same e-mail for two or more people.
3. Instructions on how to access and complete the on-line course will be sent to each person registered. You will have to set up an account with ECSI and purchase an access code*. (Listed at $40 but $24 for BSA.)
4. The online portion should be completed within 30 days of May 8. Print off the acknowledgement when finished. This must be brought to the skills session on May 8.
5. On May 8, we will do CPR/AED (That will all be in person.) from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM and then spend the rest of the day finishing WFA. You will receive a physical copy of the WFA manual then and certificates and cards will be e-mailed afterwards.
CPR/AED: Sat., May 8, 8:30am – 10:30am for those who need it.
WFA Skills: Sat., May 8, 10:30am – 5:00pm
