SOLO Wilderness First Aid Course – CANCELLED

May 12, 2023 @ 8:30 am May 13, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

4905 Lake Shore Dr
Bolton Landing, New York 12814 United States

SOLO instructors will teach a 2-day Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course focusing on emergency backcountry skills. Certification for WFA is valid for 2 years.

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.


The WFA is 16 hours long (two days), and focuses on the basic skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies.


Wilderness First Aid Certification: $225

Option for CPR certification available as an add-on: $40
