• Wilderness First Aid Training Training

    Rush Ranch on Grizzly Island

    Wilderness first aid is the assessment and treatment of injuries and illnesses in remote locations, with limited resources, for an extended period of time (definitive medical care cannot be accessed for an hour or more). The program provides valuable training in an enjoyable, hands-on format. You’ll learn a practical, step-by-step approach to WFA that will help you develop the skills and confidence you’ll need to manage backcountry emergencies. This course is designed for individuals who are not professional responders, but who require or desire wilderness first aid knowledge and skills. Hiking/climbing leaders, camp counselors or administrators, rangers and other occupations that work in wilderness, and all outdoor enthusiasts will benefit from this course. Keep in mind that Peak Skills Wilderness First Aid is not like any other WFA class you've taken! You'll get a broader depth of knowledge through the use of hands-on props and visual aids that boost retention of the material - which translates to being better prepared to respond in an actual outdoor emergency. DETAILS COST: $205 Includes 16 hours of instruction, student WFA handbook, handouts, certificate(must complete all 16 hours)and optional, free on-site camping for Saturday night. Your RSVP does not register you for the class! To register click here (https://www.peakskillsllc.com/class-registration.html). SMC Event Leaders will receive a $30 discount. With a minimum of 7 registrations, SMC paid members get $15 off. To ensure that the seriously committed backcountry enthusiasts who understand the value of WFA certification get their opportunity to attend, you'll be moved to the waitlist if you RSVP but don't complete your registration within 48 hours. DATE: June 1-2,[masked]am-5pm both days Optional CPR add-on: WFA curriculum demands a full 16 hours, but if there is enough interest a CPR certification can be added on the Friday evening before the class(cost: $70).
