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

1) Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course  - 16 hour weekend course @ Seattle Program Center taught by RMT

2) WFA Scenarios -  a hands-on practical session to be completed following the Wilderness First Aid weekend classroom course. WFA Scenarios are held on Friday evenings @ Taylor's Landing in Snohomish and to be completed following classroom course.

The classroom portion of this course is a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course taught by Remote Medical Training (RMT), 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 classroom Wilderness First Aid course is taught at the Mountaineers’ Program Center in Magnuson Park on various weekends in the spring of each 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 held at Taylor's Landing (in Snohomish) 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.
