Wilderness First Aid (WFA) by SOLO
June 2 @ 8:00 am - June 3 @ 5:00 pm
Accidents happen. People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? Many backcountry emergencies are preventable, and even when bad things happen, sometimes the wrong care can make things worse. By learning a few basic skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one – and maybe even save a life.
Wilderness First Aid is the perfect course for the outdoor enthusiast or trip leader who wants a basic level of first aid training for short trips with family, friends, and outdoor groups. It also meets ACA guidelines.
Instructor Gerry Brache will teach the 16 hour long course (spanning two days), and focuses on the basic skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies. An optional CPR Training and certification will be held on June 2nd after 5:00 PM for an additional fee. The course will be held in Wright Hall Classroom 110.
The Commuter Package for $205 includes instruction, morning break, and bag lunch both days of the course. Overnight accommodation on June 2nd and breakfast on June 3rd are included in the Residential Package for an additional cost.
