Wilderness First Aid is designed to meet the need of first-aid training for anyone who works, travels, or spends time in rural or wilderness areas. This 16-hour course examines the role of outdoor professionals in wilderness medicine and the response, care, and rescue of outdoor participants in non-urban environments. It provides intensive, in-depth training in the areas of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, patient assessment system, environmental injuries/ conditions, anaphylaxis, lifting/moving/extrication, patient carries, and backcountry medicine. The curriculum covers standards of care for trauma and medical patients for urban situations with additional protocols for remote situations. Emphasis is placed on prevention and decision-making. Certifications upon completion include: Stonehearth Open Learning Opportunities (SOLO) Wilderness First Aid and American Heart Association (AHA), and an optional CPR component is offered in addition to the 16-hour course (Adult/Child CPR). To stay current, you must repeat this course every two years. The WFA course can be taken as a WFR recertification course. You must pass a written exam.
