Course Requirements

The Wilderness First Aid class is typically a fast-paced, two-day course with 8 hours of instruction each day. The course is based on short lectures, labs and realistic practice scenarios. Students are provided ample opportunities to master the central concepts and skills of wilderness medicine along with the confidence to use it in a real setting.

This Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course is approved by the Tacoma Climbing committees as a means for Basic/Intermediate Climbing and Alpine Scrambles to meet their wilderness first aid requirements as an alternative to Mountaineering Oriented First Aid (MOFA). Basic Climbing and Alpine Scramble students are encouraged to register for, and complete, the WFA course as soon as their schedule allows.

  The course certification by Remote Medical International is valid for 2 years and is recognized world-wide by the American Mountain Guides Association, the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides, the US Government, as well as other major outdoor programs.

To fulfill the requirements of the WFA course, a three-hour “hands-on” practice session will be held on Monday 03/10/2014 beginning at 6pm. This session is required in addition to Remote Medical Internationals 16 hour course.

Once registered, additional information regarding the SRA course will be sent to your email accounts approximately 3 week prior to the start of this course. If you have not received any contact 2 weeks prior to the starting date, please contact me via email at... More
