The Wilderness First Aid program is an Expedition School course which teaches individuals how to deal with emergency situations by using first aid skills in a delayed-help environment. The Wilderness and Remote First Aid program is appropriate for audiences from youth-serving organizations as well as adults who participate in outdoor recreational activities or who work in wilderness or remote settings where emergency medical services (EMS) response is more than 1 hour away. The Wilderness and Remote First Aid program emphasizes experiential learning and major portions of the course are meant to be taught in outdoor settings.
Our Hybrid Courses offer a combination of online lecture with a live Expedition School Instructor, and in-person practical skills. Both components must be completed in order to receive a certificate for the course. Our team will be in touch on scheduling the in-person skills.
NOTE: Students must be in 100% attendance for all events in this series for course credit.
CPR is a prerequisite to taking the Wilderness First Aid Course. Students must possess and show proof of a current CPR card to attend the Wilderness First Aid Course. Further, students can register for any Expedition School CPR/AED training within 30 days of the WFA course.
