Course descriptions:

Wilderness First Aid (WFA) & CPR:

The WFA course provides a great introduction to wilderness medicine for anyone spending time in the outdoors. Like the WFR, the course focuses on injury and illness prevention, patient assessment, long-term injury management, improvised splint and litter construction and environmental emergencies.

Approximately half of the course is classroom lecture and half practical scenarios.

 

 Wilderness First Responder (WFR) & CPR

Aerie's 72 hour Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course is designed for outdoor professionals and outdoor enthusiasts, preparing them to care for injuries and illness in remote, challenging environments. The course is fast-paced, challenging, hands-on and fun.

Aerie's nationally recognized Wilderness First Responder (WFR) courses address injury and illness prevention, patient assessment, long-term patient management, improvised splint and litter construction, and environmental emergencies while stressing the thought processes unique to caring for patients in remote environments. Our instructors are professional care providers with many years of outdoor leadership experience. Students also receive adult CPR certification.

No Aerie course operates without the risk of injury or illness, and this is how it should be.  Our students take our classes because they travel, work and live outdoors, away from immediate medical care; they want to learn to care for patients under less than ideal conditions.  Aerie believes that students learn best when they are involved in realistic, engaging scenarios and practical sessions. As a result we simulate these environments and experience them as often as possible.  The risks we face during those exercises are similar to any faced in an austere, remote environment.   We encourage you to talk with our staff about risks inherent in our training programs before enrolling.

 

Refund Policy: To receive a full refund, you must notify SCA via email no later than September 5th (2 weeks prior to the pre-training start date). After Septembver 5th, please notify us if you will be unable to attend. There will be no refunds after September 5th, 2018.
