Activity Information


MOFA - Olympia

10/04/14 (Sat) - 10/19/14 (Sun)

Olympia First Aid

Robert Keranen   (Qualified Youth Leader)


MOFA is a 32 hour course offering essential safety and first aid skills and CPR for those who enjoy climbing, hiking, and other wilderness activities. This class satisfies requirements for Basic Climbing, Alpine Scrambles, and Leadership courses. The MOFA certificate is good for three years. MOFA builds prevention and basic first aid skills using the Seven Steps and Medic First Aid to help you effectively respond to trail emergencies with the gear you carry. Hands-on outdoor practice with your gear is a key part of the class. You'll respond to scenarios based on actual mountaineering incidents and instructor experiences. Outdoor practice happens rain or shine, so be ready with clothes and a pack ready for a day on the trail. Include extra clothing, trekking poles, your current first aid kit and the rest of your 10 Essentials. Come prepared to have fun and be challenged while learning MOFA.

Fall Mofa as 2 weekends. Details to be announced later. Special rates for those recertifying, and for Olympia activity leaders with 2 leads in the 12 months.
