REI CLASS: Wilderness First Aid with REI & NOLS ($$$)
Hi Everyone, I'm posting these classes for those of you who want to get together and attend. In the past, CBC members have gone to these classes together. Feel free to comment below and set up plans. You must register online through REI's website.[masked]~[masked];geo_r&page=3&previousLocation=28027 Overview Whether spending time in the backcountry is your passion or your profession, you should never ask, "What do I do now?" In this 2 day course you will learn skills and abilities to make sound decisions in emergency situations. 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 course is ideal for trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts and individuals in remote locations. The course includes a 1-hr break. 16-17 year-olds must arrive with a completed Release of Liability form, but do NOT need an accompanying adult. Participants younger than 16 must contact NOLS ([masked]). No prerequisites. Successful completion results in a Wilderness First Aid certification. You may be eligible to recertify your NOLS Wilderness Medicine Wilderness Advanced First Aid, Wilderness First Responder, or Wilderness EMT (wilderness portion only) certification on this course. Please review NOLS Wilderness Medicine recertification policies ( prior to registering.

What we're about

Hello there! I created this group because I love being outdoors and recently rekindled my passion for backpacking and camping. Backpacking is very different from glamping or car camping. This has made it difficult to find other people to go with me. And I thought if I'm having a hard time maybe other people are too. That’s when I had that light bulb moment, if you create a Meetup group they will come.

All levels are welcome. Let's have fun exploring and who doesn't enjoy a good camp fire?
