First Aid Course

Wilderness First Aid (WFA) - Everett

Basic wilderness medicine training course that focuses on prevention, assessment, and treatment for an ill or injured person in a remote environment where definitive care is not readily available.

This is a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course taught by Remote Medical Training (RMT), a leader in wilderness medicine training and education. In 2023, this WFA course will be offered as an in-person, 2-day course (~16 hours total, held at the Mountaineers' Seattle Program Center) 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 dates for the cLASSes are:
Class 1: March 4-5 from 8am-5pm @ Seattle Program Center
Class 2: April 15-16 from 8am-5pm @ Seattle Program Center

Looking for renewal options? Wilderness First Aid is renewed by re-taking the full course. A variety of options are available. If you prefer in-person training, register for this course or another in-person course. Some providers are also offering online or remote/virtual renewals in some cases. If you take a WFA course outside the Mountaineers organization, follow information below for equivalency. 


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.
