Info
COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

This is a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course taught by Remote Medical Training (RMT), a leader in wilderness medicine training and education. As long as we are under restrictions on gathering size due to COVID-19, this WFA course will be offered as a hybrid online/in-person, ~16 hour course 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 in the order they are presented below:

  1.  WFA Online Learning - approximately 8 hours of virtual  learning consisting of two virtual lectures (6-9pm on weeknights) and two online modules to be completed at any time during the course week. 
  2. WFA Hands-On Training -  a hands-on practical session held outdoors at the Mountaineers Seattle Program Center in Magnuson Park on Saturday or Sunday from 8am to 5pm. We will be outside for the *entirety* of the hands-on training day, but please plan to follow social distancing/PPE protocols, as well. You will be required to follow the Mountaineers' COVID protocols.
The dates for the cLASSes are:
Class 1: Online lectures March 15 & 17 from 6-9pm; In-person March 20 from 8am-5pm
Class 2: Online lectures March 16 & 18 from 6-9pm; In-person March 21 from 8am-5pm

Please navigate to and register for a WFA class that works best for your schedule below in the "course requirements" section below.

The course includes an independent WFA certification. Your course fee covers the cost of this instruction.

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.
