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.

The Wilderness First Aid class is typically a fast-paced, two-day course with 8 hours of instruction each day. Starting 8:00am to 5:00pm.  The course is based on short lectures, labs and realistic practice scenarios. Students are provided ample opportunities to master the central concepts and skills of wilderness medicine along with the confidence to use it in a real setting.

This Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course is approved by the Tacoma Climbing committees as a means for Basic/Intermediate Climbing and Alpine Scrambles to meet their wilderness first aid requirements as an alternative to Mountaineering Oriented First Aid (MOFA). Basic Climbing and Alpine Scramble students are encouraged to register for, and complete, the WFA course as soon as their schedule allows.  

The course certification by Remote Medical International is valid for 2 years and is recognized world-wide by the American Mountain Guides Association, the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides, the US Government, as well as other major outdoor programs.

In addition to the 16 hour WFA course, participants must complete a three-hour, hands-on practical session to test your skills and knowledge you just gained. This practical session can be accomplished at any of the Mountaineers branches. Tacoma will be offering the practical session the Monday evening following the weekend 16 hour course.
