Advanced Wilderness First Aid: May 27-28
This course is designed as an upgrade from Wilderness First Aid. You must possess a valid Wilderness First Aid certificate prior to taking this course. This certificate must be valid within one year.
This course is designed to prepare you to deal with someone for more than 24 hours. We teach a minimum of 75% of the course out side to create a realistic learning environment. This course has the Standard First Aid and CPR C with AED built into the course. So upon successful completion you will have these certificates built into your Advanced Wilderness First Aid certificate.
Like the WFA course, we add basic shelter construction that is not part of the certificate.
Free Skill Refreshers for anyone who takes our Wilderness First Aid courses!

We cover the same material as the WFA course, but with AWFA, the material is more in-depth. On top of the Wilderness First Aid content, we include the following information:
- Helmet Removal
- Traction and Realignment of Fractures
- Pulse Checks
- Jaw Thrust for People with Possible Spinal Injuries
- Rescue Breathing

A specific gear list will be sent to you prior to the course. Be prepared to bring a full pack with gear you’d usually take on an extended trip.
