Wilderness First Aid

You must RSVP with REI to attend. RSVPing on meetup will not register you for the class.

Here is the link to the class: http://www.rei.com/event/46374/session/81872


REI and the Wilderness Medicine Institute of the NOLS offer a comprehensive two day course that will teach you the wilderness medicine skills you need to recreate with confidence in the backcountry. From the Patient Assessment System through traumatic, medical, and environmental emergencies, you'll experience a wide variety of topics designed to prepare you to act if an accident occurs. This is a 16 hour course over two days. The course begins at 9am each day and runs through 6pm, with a 1-hour break midday. Minimum age is 16 years old. You will have both classroom time and hands on practice scenarios. Practice scenarios may take place outside in various weather conditions; be prepared for inclement weather. No prerequisites required. Successful completion results in a Wilderness Medicine Institute of NOLS Wilderness First Aid certification. This course may be used to recertify Wilderness First Responder, Wilderness Advanced First Aid and Wilderness EMT (wilderness portion only) certifications if you hold a current or grace year WMI certification. Participants using the WFA to recertify their WFR need to pass both a written and a practical test.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
