The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) two-day training course includes short lectures, interactive labs, and realistic practice scenarios that help students master the central concepts of remote and wilderness medicine. This course teaches students how to respond to and manage patients effectively in an emergency for up to four hours or until a higher level of care arrives. A CPR certification is included in this course, as well as a Remote Medical Training WFA.

Designed for the outdoor enthusiast or the employee working in remote or challenging locations, the WFA includes a broad range of introductory medical skills and topics. Subjects include:

  • Patient assessment
  • Lifting and moving patients
  • Cold and heat emergencies
  • Altitude
  • Immersion and submersion
  • Lightning response
  • Legal considerations, and more

Students also learn how to effectively manage basic wounds, infection, shock, head injuries, spinal injuries, respiratory and cardiac emergencies, abdominal pain, metabolic and allergic reactions, and altered mental states. 

This course is hosted by Wilderness Awareness School, but will be taught by Remote Medical Training.
