Wilderness First Aid and
Wilderness First Responder Re-certification


September 7-8, 2013


About the WFA
The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course will help you prepare for the unexpected. This fast paced, hands-on training is designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts and individuals working in remote locations. It will introduce you to caring for people who become ill or injured far from definitive medical care. Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning. At the end of the course, you’ll have the knowledge, skills and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations. Learning takes place both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather conditions. Come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments.

No previous first aid training is required. You must be 16 years old to attend this course.


Re-certification Information
This course may be used to recertify WMI Wilderness Advanced First Aid, WMI Wilderness First Responder and WMI Wilderness EMT (wilderness portion only) certifications. Participants using the WFA to recertify their WFR need to pass both a written and a practical examination.
