The 32-hour Advanced Wilderness First Aid course expands upon the core curriculum of the WFA.   It goes into greater depth on essential first aid subjects, emphasizing leadership and management of wilderness emergencies. The Advanced WFA incorporates more trauma and medical emergencies along with their appropriate interventions using hands-on, scenario based learning. Additional concepts such as building improvised litters and litter carrying techniques, injury evaluation and judgment-based critical decision making, spinal management and long term care considerations are an integral part of this advanced program. This course is ideal for outdoor educators, trip leaders (2-4 days), adventure camp counselors and river guides.

 Certification is valid for 3 years and includes AHA Heartsaver CPR.

Please come prepared to spend time both in the classroom and outdoors. All SOLO first aid courses specialize in providing emergency care in a wilderness setting. Therefore, be prepared for any and all seasonal weather conditions by insuring that you have the appropriate clothing, footwear and outerwear (rain gear etc.) for your course. Please include a set of clothing that can be cut, torn or stained for use in patient simulations. It is also recommended that you bring a small day pack for carrying first aid supplies during simulations. For indoor classroom lectures, please bring pens and a notebook for taking notes to refresh your memory on key points.
