Course Objectives:
The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course is designed to meet the needs of people that are interested in learning about wilderness emergencies and how to treat them properly.

After taking this course you will be familiar with some of the most common backcountry problems. You’ll have hands on practice in evaluating, treating, and evacuating injured persons in wilderness settings. You’ll get a feel for what situations require medical assistance and those which do not.

Course Dates:
Next course will be held at Larryland outside of Keene, Ontario. June 14 (afternoon)-15-16.

The 14th is the start date and begins at around 3 pm. You will be expected to camp out at our site as we will be running some simulations. You should bring a pair of pants and a shirt you do not mind cutting up for practice. Treat this as a real weekend camping trip and bring all your camping gear.
