WFR-Recert Also Available
This certification course is taught by Nick Gordon aka Nickofthewoods and backed by the SOLO, the undisputed leader in wilderness medicine.
Accidents happen. People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? By learning a few basic skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one – and maybe even save a life.
Wilderness First Aid (WFA) and Wilderness First Responder (WFR) are hands-on training designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts, and individuals working in remote locations. WFA is a 16 hour (two day) course that focuses on the basic skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal & Soft Tissue Injuries, Environmental & Medical Emergencies, Survival Skills, and more.
A large part of wilderness medicine is gaining the knowledge and confidence to help others and think outside the box when you have very limited equipment. This means learning to improvise medical necessities such as splints, bandages, and more from the materials you have with you outdoors.
During the course, you will participate in discussions and demonstrations combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning. Upon completion, you will receive a SOLO WFA certification (valid for two years) or re-certify your current WFR for another 3 years.
This two-part class runs 8:00am-5:00pm both Saturday and Sunday. You must have current CPR for WFA or WFR to be valid. CPR/AED can be added for a small fee of $35.
Learning takes place in an outdoor sheltered settings. Come prepared for any weather. Early spring can bring warm sunshine or deep snow. Camping is free on site or you can stay at a hotel in town.
