What is Wilderness First Aid?
Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is an in-depth First Aid Certification course that focuses on prevention, assessment, and care for an injured or ill person in a remote wilderness environment where EMS or rapid medical transport may not be readily available.
Who Needs Wilderness First Aid (WFA) Training?
Wilderness First Aid (WFA) training is for people who spend time in the outdoors away from medical services. This includes Backpackers, Hikers, Campers, Hunters, Fishermen, Trail Guides, Camp Leaders, Boy Scout Leaders, Girl Scout Leaders, and other outdoor enthusiasts. Wilderness First Aid Certification is required by one or two people per trek at Boy Scouts of America High Adventure Bases. WFA Certification is also required for Girl Scout Leaders taking troops abroad.
