Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is SOLO’s most popular course and it creates a solid foundation in the basics of backcountry medical care. 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 cardio-pulmonary 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. To stay current, you must repeat this course every two years.
Price does NOT include lodging or meals. Those packages can be purchased separately when reserving a cabin night! Each cabin night reserved includes 3 full meals.
