Whether you are a weekend warrior, a long distance hiker, rock climber, or backcountry guide, Wilderness First Aid (WFA) will help you keep yourself and those around you safe on adventures. During this two-day hands-on course, learn how to approach emergency situations and develop skills to help no matter where you find yourself! The course is led by Danielle O’Farrell, certified SOLO Wilderness First Aid instructor.
By the end of the course, you’ll have the knowledge, skills, and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations. You will receive a workbook for later reference, and a certificate of completion. If you are not CPR certified, you can complete this training as well.
