NOLS Wilderness First Aid Certification
Thursday Apr 9 – Friday Apr 10, 2020
Whether spending time in the backcountry is your passion or your profession, you should never have to ask, “What do I do now?” Prepare for the unexpected with this fun, hands-on introduction to wilderness medicine.
If you like to take short trips relatively close to medical resources, work at camps or lead wilderness trips, enjoy weekend family outdoor activities, or recreate outdoors, this course is for you.
You’ll learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for injuries and illnesses common in the outdoors, how to manage environmental emergencies, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions. You will spend half your time practicing skills and participating in realistic scenarios.
NOLS Wilderness Medicine’s course is approved by such organizations as the American Camp Association, the United States Coast Guard, and other states as well as federal agencies.
Upon successful course completion you will earn the following NOLS Wilderness Medicine certifications: Wilderness First Aid, Epinephrine Auto-injector, and on courses with the CPR module, Adult and Child CPR & Airway Management.
In addition to your NOLS class, take advantage of NORA’s unique offerings with an Introduction to Off-Road Driving 3-hour class (with rental trail rig) on Saturday (9am-12pm) after WFA. Practical knowlege and experience driving in rugged terrain can help in many applications (e.g. patient evacuation). Add a 3 hour off-road driving class to learn these skills with a NORA certified instructor. Available as an optional add-on below. Note: Add-on driving class is offered through NORA and is not affiliated with NOLS.
