WFA Wilderness First Aid  - two 8-hour lectures

WFA Scenarios -  a 2-3 hour hands-on scenarios practice session

Wilderness First Aid is taught by experienced wilderness and emergency medical providers from Remote Medical International (RMI). The course includes an independent certification that is recognized nationally. Your course fee covers the cost of this instruction.

WFA Scenarios is a hands-on practical session at an outdoor location to test your skills after completing the Wilderness First Aid course.   The Foothills Branch scenario session will be held Monday evening May 9. Completion of the lectures and the scenarios session are required to receive your badge in the Mountaineers system. You may not do these out of order.

 Subsidies are available to active Foothills leaders - contact the course leader to inquire about whether you qualify for subsidies for this course.
