The Approach

This hands-on course does not require any previous first aid training... but even people with advanced occupational first aid training learn a lot.  We get you practicing your improvisational skills as you figure out how to use the equipment you carry in your daypack, as well as any sticks or other elements in your environment, to create splints and both treat and transport an injured person.  It's fun, and it really gets you thinking!

You will be taught each skill and will have a chance to practice them in a fun and professional environment.  Upon successful completion of the course you will receive a SOLO WFA certification, good for two years.  Most importantly, this training may someday save a life!

* Some teachers may be eligible to use this certification as continuing ed credits as well, and for professional development.
