Wilderness First Aid Training
Wilderness First Aid expands on basic first aid training with advanced emergency management and assessment techniques. During a Wilderness First Aid course Scouters and youth members over age 16 learn how to assess, treat, and manage emergencies so they can safely take their adventures into areas beyond the reach of rapid emergency response.
This training meets the requirements for those units participating in high adventure treks. BSA requires two members of a Crew be currently certified in Wilderness First Aid (WFA) and CPR. WFA certification is good for two years. (CPR will NOT be offered during this course.) Adult leaders and Scouts age 16 and above may attend. See resources for more information.
