The Alpine First Aid course consists of two parts:

• AFA Wilderness First Aid Course - taught by Remote Medical International (RMI) at the Mountaineers’ Program Center in Magnuson Park, a fee applies

•AFA Scenarios – a hands-on practical session at the Mountaineers’ Program Center to test your skills after completing the Wilderness First Aid course

To complete the Alpine First Aid course, participants must complete both a Wilderness First Aid and a Scenarios section.

The Alpine First Aid (AFA) course is approved by the Seattle, Tacoma and Everett Climbing and Alpine Scramble committees as a means for Basic Climbing and Alpine Scramble students to meet their wilderness first aid requirement as an alternative to a Mountaineers' MOFA (Mountaineering Oriented First Aid) course. Basic Climbing and Alpine Scramble students are encouraged to register for and complete the AFA course as soon as their schedule allows.
