Wilderness First Aid Certification- with the National Outdoor Leadership School

  • Oct 25, 2014 · 8:00 AM

Attention LEADERS and ANYONE interested! In my pursuit to become certified as a ride guide and skills instructor, I invite you to join me in learning how we can all watch out for one another in the event of a medical emergency while out on our rides, camps, and events.

CPR and basic First Aid will be hosted before October, stay tuned for that separate event.

Dates: Sat, 25 Oct 2014 thru Sun, 26 Oct 2014
CPR Included: No
Minimum age: 16
Price: $210 - Tuition Only 

UCSC Santa Cruz Location 

The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course will help you prepare for the unexpected. This fast paced, hands-on training is designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts and individuals working in remote locations. It will introduce you to caring for people who become ill or injured far from definitive medical care. Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning. At the end of the course, you’ll have the knowledge, skills and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations.

Taught by seasoned instructors in a two or two and a half day format, most WFA courses are held on a weekend. Learning takes place both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather conditions. Come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments.

Prerequisites: No previous first aid training is required. You must be 16 years old to attend this course.

    Krista, do you want to meet somewhere and ride in together and split the parking, or just park individually and meet in the classroom? The parking is $3.00 per day.

      Parking lots 109 & 110, which are the closest lots, are $3/day on the weekends and the pay stations accept coins, dollar bills and credit cards. http://maps.ucsc.edu/...­
