Standard first aid does not provide the skills or knowledge to respond when emergency services are delayed or unavailable. The 16-hour Wilderness First Aid course includes lectures, skills labs and scenario practice designed to help you feel ready to respond to medical emergencies, treat injuries and illnesses, and improvise solutions with the items you carry.

IS wfa for me?
No experience is necessary to take a WFA course - for many people, it may be the first experience they have with a first aid course. The WFA course is a great choice to meet certification needs required for employment or volunteer opportunities as well as for anyone who:
- Enjoys recreating in areas where response may be greater than one hour away
- Lives or works in an area where emergency care may be delayed
- Is curious about injuries and illnesses that may occur in remote areas and how to respond
