Accidents happen.  People get hurt, sick, or lost.  The temperature drops, the wind picks up and it starts to rain.  Would you know what to do?  Many backcountry emergencies are preventable, and even when bad things happen, the wrong care can make things worse.  By learning a few basic skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one - maybe even save a life! WFA is our most popular course and sets a solid foundation of the basics of remote medical care.  This course can also be used to recertify current SOLO WFR's.and WEMT's, however it is recommended to take the WFR/WEMT Review course instead. *** Please note as of Jan 1, 2020 non-SOLO WFR's can only be recertified by the SOLO WFR Recert Course listed below.  

72 - 80 hrs, 8-9 days - $800pp includes CPR/AED
