The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course will help you prepare for the unexpected. 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 in austere environments. At the end of the course, you’ll have the knowledge, skills and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations where immediate medical care from professionals is either currently unavailable or impossible due to a disaster.
