Course Description

Our Wilderness Advanced First Aid course is designed for people taking half-, full, or short multi-day trips, those traveling with reliable cell or satellite coverage, and where outside assistance may be delayed for several hours. WAFA courses cover more topics and skills than our WFA course and dive slightly deeper into pathophysiology. People with current WAFA, WFR, & WEMT certifications from approved providers can recertify via WAFA and online testing.
