Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is one of the most intense and comprehensive first aid courses available to those with no medical background. This course is based on Wilderness Medical Society Guidelines and medical best practices.
This blended learning WFA course consists of two portions - the online portion of the course and an in person Skills Assessment.
The online portion of this course consists of all thirty-three lectures, demonstrations, videos and slides found in the traditional, onsite, two-day, sixteen hour Wilderness First Aid certification course. Additional bonus content to include downloadable handouts and checklist are made available to you in this course. You will have the opportunity to test your new knowledge with graded quizzes and practice your skills in scenarios provided in this course.
The Skills Assessment portion of this course consists of eight hours of hands on skills assessment where you will demonstrate splinting skills, primary and secondary assessment skills and identifying and treating patient illnesses and injuries. You will need to register for the in person Skills Assessment and successfully pass to receive a Wilderness First Aid certification.
Skills Assessments schedule:
Lexington, KY - May 1, 2021

This course will teach you to identify and manage life-threatening injuries and knowledge and skills to identify and treat injuries and illnesses when Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is hours away.
Upon successful completion of the online portion and in person skills assessment, you will earn an internationally recognized, two-year Wilderness First Aid certification.
