First Aid Course

Wilderness First Aid

First Aid Everett

The required evening scenario night is scheduled for 30 May 2018 at Taylor's Landing in Snohomish (5506 Old Machias Rd Snohomish WA 98290) from 6 pm - 9 pm.  

This is a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course taught by Remote Medical International (RMI), a leader in wilderness medicine training and education. The WFA course is 16 hours and designed to provide elementary skills in remote care. Based on recommendations from the Wilderness Medical Society and evidence-based research, the curriculum focuses on making sound decisions regarding patient evacuation, as well as skills for extended care. The Wilderness First Aid courses are hands-on, experiential format providing 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.

The Wilderness First Aid course consists of two parts. To finish the course and receive credit, participants must complete both of the following:

WFA Wilderness First Aid  - 16 hour weekend course

WFA Scenarios -  a hands-on practical session 

Wilderness First Aid is taught by Remote Medical International (RMI) at the Mountaineers’ Program Center in Magnuson Park on various weekends throughout the year. The course includes an independent WFA certification. Your course fee covers the cost of this instruction.

WFA Scenarios is a hands-on practical session at the Mountaineers’ Program Center to test your skills after completing the Wilderness First Aid course. Register for a scenario date that occurs after your WFA course. You may not do these out of order.

Equivalency notes: Some requirements may be waived or equivalency granted to individuals who have current backcountry medical certifications or extensive experience in providing medical care in remote or austere environments. Contact the course leader if you meet these requirements. You will have to provide proof of your certification and/or experience and may still be required to complete the Scenarios portion of the class to receive credit. Urban and front-country medical training alone is not sufficient to meet this requirement, even with advanced education and experience.
