Description

Wilderness First Aid & CPR Arborist Specific Training

The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course is a 3-day training that provides introductory medical skills to individuals working around trees and in remote environments. Through a hands-on and scenario-based approach, this course offers the skills and confidence needed to make informed medical decisions when definitive care is hours away. The WFA includes short lectures, interactive labs, and realistic practice scenarios that help students master the central concepts of remote medicine and effectively respond to an emergency if necessary. Students completing the course will receive a 24hr Wilderness First Aid Card (valid for three years) and an OSHA Approved CPR Card (valid for two years).

The WFA includes an introduction to a broad range of medical skills and topics, including: ‣ Scene Safety and Site Control ‣ Patient Assessment System & Suspension Trauma ‣ Spinal Assessment, Lifting & Moving Patients ‣ Musculoskeletal & Spinal Injury Management ‣ Impalements, Wound Management & Infection ‣ Respiratory & Cardiac Emergencies ‣ Bees, Insects, Metabolic & Allergic Reactions ‣ Chainsaw & Handsaw Wounds ‣ Cold / Heat Emergencies ‣ Crushing Injuries, CPR & AED and More.
