What: 

Wilderness First Aid Certification ( W. F. A ) Course 

The Wilderness Medicine Institute is the leader in wilderness medicine education. Our goal is to provide the highest quality education and information for the recognition, treatment, and prevention of wilderness emergencies.

Our dynamic curriculum is accurate, practical and relevant. It’s supported by internationally recognized wilderness medicine protocols and implemented by a full-time Curriculum Director.

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 and a half day format, 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.

 

Certification: Successful course completion earns you a WMI Wilderness First Aid certification. If applicable, you will also earn a WMI Adult & Child CPR certification. Both certifications are current for two years.

 

Recertification: This course may also be used to recertify WMI Wilderness First Responder and WMI Wilderness EMT (wilderness portion only) certifications. Participants using the WFA to recertify their WFR need to pass both a written and a practical examination. 

 

When: 

April 4th- 6th 2014 

 

Where: 

Talbot Island Florida 

Camping and classroom made available courtesy of the North Florida Land Trust
