Everett First Aid Committee

Our course teaches all the basic skills of a normal first aid course, but with special emphasis on providing extended emergency care for ill or injured subjects in a wilderness setting.


This hybrid Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course is taught by Base Medical and is designed to provide elementary skills in remote medical care. The course will be offered in a hybrid format consisting of 8 hours of online asynchronous instruction followed by an 8 hour in-person class held at the Mountaineers' Seattle Program Center. The course meets the Wilderness Medicine Education Collaborative (WMEC) Scope of Practice for WFA training and will provide you with a WFA certification in addition to the Mountaineer's badge.

The curriculum focuses on making sound decisions regarding patient treatment and evacuation in the wilderness environment as well as skills for extended care. The in-person portion of the course provides students with the skills and confidence for making remote medical care decisions. WFA is ideal for climbers, scramblers and other outdoor recreation enthusiasts who either work or play away from definitive medical facilities and support.

Wilderness First Aid is open to Mountaineer members or non-members (sign up as "Guest".)

Course dates fill fast, so sign up early. (Especially if WFA completion is required for graduation of other Mountaineers courses.)

Course location

All classroom sessions will be held at the Seattle Mountaineers Program Center in Magnuson Park. Directions can be found here.
