Wilderness First Aid

Accidents happen. People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? Many backcountry emergencies are preventable, and even when bad things happen, sometimes the wrong care can make things worse. By learning a few basic skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one – and maybe even save a life.

While much of the material appears to be standard emergency care information, the backcountry emphasis with long-term care and evacuation complications makes this course unique. Course material can be modified to meet the specific interests or needs of a group, i.e., cycling, kayaking, climbing, etc.

The Two-Year SOLO WFA certification is accepted nationally by leading outdoor organizations and state guide licensing agencies and has been recognized by the American Camping Association as meeting their first aid requirements.

Wilderness First Responder Re-Cert

This two-day review is designed to re-certify individuals previously certified as Wilderness First Responders. Although open to any WFR graduate, SOLO currently has reciprocity with WMI/NOLS and WMA; graduates of these programs can be re-certified through SOLO providing their certification is current at the time of the course.

CPR Recertification is available for an additional fee. Proof of eligible WFR and CPR training must be provided to SOLO before renewal cards will be issued.
