Wait list is closed for now. Fall sessions will be available for registration on July 1; we'll re-open course registration at that time.

Summer/Fall sessions for 2021

Summer and Fall sessions are scheduled to be held in-person over two days at a lower capacity. Self-study for the CPR portion is required prior to in-person days. Materials will be available 1-2 weeks prior to in-person.

You must be in good health to participate in the course. PPE may still be required regardless of vaccination status. While we are still dealing with COVID implications to public health, the evening practical scenario session will not be part of the course.

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.
