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.

Everett, Foothills, and Tacoma will be offering sessions in 2021. Watch the course listings for these sessions to open for registration in early 2021.

Closing the wait list for now. When we add sessions for late spring and fall, we'll open registration again.

Hybrid sessions for 2021

As long as we are under restrictions on gathering size due to COVID-19, the course will be offered as hybrid sessions. These sessions will consist of:

  • self-study via Remote Medical Training's online portal
  • 2 virtual sessions  held weekday evenings in the week prior to the skills day
  • 1 in-person skills day.

The virtual sessions will be held weekday evenings in the week prior to the skills day. They will be 3 hours long each. The Skills day occurs at the Mountaineers Program center in Seattle on a weekend day. We will be outside for the *entirety* of the skills day, but please plan to follow social distancing/PPE protocols, as well. You will be required to follow the Mountaineers' COVID protocols

While we are under COVID restrictions for gathering, the evening practical scenario session will not be part of the course.

Dates are in the process of being confirmed. This course will be updated as soon as they are available.

When registering for a session, you must be able to attend all dates for the session. You may not mix and match dates.

Wilderness First Aid is taught by Remote Medical Training (RMT) 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.

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.
