Wilderness First Aid - Standard - Mar 24 + 25, 2017
Fri, Mar 24, 2017, 5:00 PM – Sat, Mar 25, 2017, 5:00 PM MDT
This class is open to individual members of the public who wish to participate, it is sponsored by a Boy Scout troop and some of the training will be specific to their needs.
There are three levels of WFA training. Basic (8 hours), Standard (16 hours), and Advanced (32 hours).
This class is the Standard level of training. This class is the required prerequisit to take the Advanced Wilderness Class. We are able to speed it up by not taking as many breaks, and the breaks we take are brief. Lunch is your own bag lunch, and will be just 15-20 minutes without leaving the building. By doing that we can make this fit a Friday night, all day Saturday schedule.
Be prepared to participate. Wear comfortable clothing, and be ready to get down on the floor as we work through numerous scenarios.
FRIDAY - arrive 5 pm to 5:15 pm. Class begins at 5:30pm. The Firday class is all academic. No hands-on. We will finish around 9:30pm but no later than 10 pm. Bring a notebook, snacks, and drinks.
SATURDAY - arrive between 7:45 and 8 am and be ready to participate in active senarios where you will learn to perform the skills from the class. You will work in a group of 6 or more. PLEASE bring a bag containing clothing, and items you would have with you when backpacking, or on your widerness campout. These will be used to improvise, which is a significant portion of this class.
AGE - this is an adult class and requires maturity and ability to work in a group and actively participate. Nineth grade students and up may participate.
Pre-requisite REQUIREMENT - Participants must have a current First Aid, CPR, AED certification from an organization that teaches the current Red Cross, Heart Association, and International Concensus standards of performance. BRING YOUR CARD to class (it must not be more than 6 months old). IF YOU DO NOT have a current FA/CPR/AED card you may arrange to get one at this training. You will need to stay late on Saturday and pay an additional $10 at the class in cash.
COST - The cost of this class is $165 for general public, however the BSA, Search and Rescue, and other non-profits have a discounted price of $55 each. This is the complete cost. There is nothing extra to buy. It includes everything.
The class is limited in size because of the size of the classroom, so if you do not register in advance you might not get in if you just show up. The price at the door is $25 more (cash or card).
NOTHING EXTRA TO PAY - all participants receive, at no additional cost, an app for smart phones (that works with or without a cell signal), a very extensive PDF manual that works on any device, and a card at the end of the class that is good for two years.
LATE, OR LEAVE CLASS - Participants are expected to be present the entire time of the class in order to receive a card. There will be breaks that will give you time to respond to texts/e-mails/voice mail.
THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR ANY REASON. If you pay and do not attend without notice you do not get a refund. HOWEVER, your payment is transferable to someone else if you cannot attend, but you must notify us in writing. DEPLOYED search and rescue people are elligible for a refund at any time. Anyone who is unable to attend but does not get a refund may transfer their payment to another class in the future.
