Have you ever wondered what you would do if someone in your group broke their leg skiing or your climbing partner was struck in the head by a rock? Every backcountry skiing, climbing or mountaineering group should have people trained in wilderness first aid skills because it’s only a matter of time in before you will need to put them into use in the backcountry.
Wilderness First Aid – WFA (18 hours) is an entry level, 2-day course for those who are involved in wilderness activities. This course is the choice of many recreational skiers, climbers, and mountaineers. Basic first aid skills will be taught in the classroom and practiced hands-on in the wilderness environment. This course also meets the requirements for a WFR Refresher.
Lecture and discussion, practical exercise and outdoor scenarios help students gain confidence, and encourage the development of critical decision-making skills. After successful completion students are certified for 2 years by the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI), a nationally recognized organization.
We will have the WFR Refresher course held at the Peter Grubb hut on Donner Summit. Located 3 miles from Interstate 80, the Peter Grubb hut is the most popular of the 4 Sierra Club huts. This hut is a great base camp to further explore terrain in the Castle Peak vicinity and we will plan to stay over and camp the evening of September 16th.
This will be two full days of instruction and the Course Cost is : $290.00.
Includes ASHI WFA & CPR Card. Does not include Wilderness First Aid Student Handbook: $20
