Silverton, CO • June 4, 2019
Full Dates: June 4, 2019 – June 6, 2019
Duration: 3 days
WMTC’s standard Wilderness First Aid workshops are designed to introduce participants to the concepts of medical care in a wilderness setting. This course may be the best choice for dealing with incidents in remote settings but within cell phone coverage. This course focuses mostly on trauma related problems, but also covers select environmental and medical topics. The majority of the course is hands-on skills practice and simulations, and there is no formal testing. Unless indicated, CPR certification is not included.
WMTC’s WFA course meets the Boy Scouts of America and the American Camping Association trip leader requirements.
Graduates from WMTC approved wilderness medicine schools may recertify their Wilderness First Responder or WEMT with this course if they are currently certified or within their grace period. Click here for a list of currently WMTC approved providers.
