Overview

WFA is a 2-day, 16 hour course. At the end of the course, each participant will receive a SOLO WFA certification that is valid for 2 years. This course provides a pragmatic approach to treating injuries and managing emergency situations in the backcountry. Topics will include: Patient Assessment, Rescue Plans, Soft Tissue Injuries, Musculoskeletal Trauma, Medical Emergencies, and Common Environmental Problems. Each participant will receive SOLO's Field Guide to Wilderness First Aid. A series of quizzes throughout the course will test the participant's understanding of the material. Each day will be comprised of both indoor classroom lecture and outdoor scenarios. Be prepared to be outside in any type of weather-the class will continue rain or shine or snow or wind or heat. We will not be hiking during the course, so be prepared to be comfortable while stationary outside and inside. Please be sure to bring warm clothing for both the indoor and outdoor portions of the course and dress in layers. The course fee includes the WFA training and materials. You may enroll in the optional CPR course, offered on Saturday after the WFA training, for an additional $40 (paid by check at the time of training). A complete list of what to bring will be provided after registration. Lodging may be reserved in AMC's Joe Dodge Lodge by calling 603-466-2727 (for more information on lodging cost, availability, and meals, visit https://www.outdoors.org/lodging-camping/lodges/pinkham).
