Basic Wilderness First Aid


SKU: N/A Category: Tag:

Do you like day hikes? Lead hikes? Just starting out? Now is a great time to learn Basic Wilderness First Aid.

Day 1 is dedicated to “urban first aid”. Students will receive a certification good for two years through the American Heart Association. A textbook and all training materials are provided. We cover CPR (adult and child), AED (automatic external defibrillator), and First Aid.

Day 2 is Basic Wilderness First Aid and certified through Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI). We use the information that we learned in day 1 and build on it to adapt it to a wildness setting. Everything is indoors (including the practice sessions).

Topics of Day 2 include:

Getting Help/Preplanning

Medical Emergencies


Bleeding and Bandaging

Trauma and Splits

First Aid Kits

*Please note that if you are with the BSA, this class does not meet the requirements for high adventure. You must take WFA.
