Wilderness First Aid Course

Saturday, April 27, 2013 - 8:00am
Silver Springs, MD

SCA is pleased to continue our relationship with Aerie Backcountry Medicine to offer a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course. This 16-hour course provides a great introduction to wilderness medicine education for anyone spending time in the outdoors. The course focuses on injury and illness prevention, patient assessment, long-term injury management, improvised splint and litter construction and environmental emergencies.

Approximately half of the course is classroom lecture and half practical scenarios. CPR classes will be offered the evening before WFA classes begin.
