Wilderness First Aid Course

Register for the May 24-26 WFA course

The WFA is a 24 hour course.  Sign up for the early registration rate for the May 24-26 course by the end of today…visit the Expy.  This course is designed for outdoor enthusiasts going on day and short overnight trips.  It is the minimum medical training expected for all overnight trip leaders (a WFR course is recommended for most summer outdoor jobs, and for longer or trips with more hazards).
