ONLINE (self-paced) Wilderness First Aid available ALL DAYS NOW until August 31!

In your own home, at your own leisure: now you can learn a ton in the online portion of Disaster + Travel + Wilderness First Aid! Course Fee: $220, which is $55 per person less than what another national school charges for their shorter less-in-depth course. You get a 3-year credit for an in-person class, plus the online learn-now bonus. Here is a sneak peek of the course: https://www.solowfa.com/online-sample.htm This "Blended Learning" format has two parts: Part 1) COURSE TOPICS VIDEOS & SELF-GUIDED PRACTICE portion almost exactly as MEDIC SOLO always presents it. Our instructors just finished recording topic presentations in the latest of disaster and wilderness medical science. Intermixed at several points we guide you to practice various skills. >>> Testimonials: • "Fantastic online program." • "The quality of teaching and the personality of each instructor was ABSOLUTELY STELLAR. There is a lot more to learning than just the textbook curriculum, especially with medical situations." • "It was much less stressful having the opportunity to be taught on my own schedule rather than having two intensive days." • Much appreciation for the ability to click "pause" to take notes and write down questions (which MEDIC will answer), and ability to rewind and replay demonstrations, explanations, etc. -- can't do that in a live class. Part 2) A 3-year credit to attend any in-person open-enrollment MEDIC SOLO dtWFA course, to solidify your skills and graduate with SOLO WFA certification. INFO and REGISTRATION / TO GET STARTED: www.solowfa.com/register-SOLO-disaster-wilderness-first-aid-course.htm ~ ~ ~ Let's all please do our part to maintain social distancing, and do what we can to prevent problems and treat injured people, so as to reduce demands on hospitals. Exercise outdoors, where allowed, is great to boost your immune system; however we've found many people on trails are not respecting social distancing when passing by. If you decide to go out, when you see someone you'll pass by, please proactively step off trail at least 6 feet. Try to leave no trace as best you can, stepping only on durable surfaces like bare rock when possible. Thanks! Now is a time when your dtWFA skills may be needed most. • Hospital beds are filling up and we need to reduce their demand. If with dtWFA skills you treat someone and they no longer need to go to the hospital, fantastic and so helpful in many ways. • Some parks are seeing their highest-ever mid-week daytime visits. More people are outdoor adventuring and most don't have the skills you signed up to learn, and may be in need especially as more first-timers go explore the outdoors. • Hopefully the following will never happen: fewer EMTs staffing ambulances and thus a call to 911 for medical assistance is less responsive, or outbreaks occur within hospitals and those entire facilities end up being quarantined and unavailable ... leaving it up to dtWFA-trained folks to provide care. Thank you everyone, for all that you do to strengthen our communities, making disaster and wilderness areas safer for all.
