This course is different from the course offered through Mayflower Council.  This is a much more in-depth course offered through SOLO wilderness medicine schools.

The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course will help you prepare for the unexpected. This fast-paced, hands-on training is designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts and individuals working in remote locations. It will introduce you to caring for people who become ill or injured far from definitive medical care.

Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning. At the end of the course, you'll have the knowledge, skills, and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations.

This course will be offered at New England Base Camp (411 Unquity Rd, Milton MA).  The course day runs from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm, both days.  Lunch will be included both days for the course and lodging is available. 

COST - $225.00 per Participant

This course is also offered on March 30th - 31st
Please compare this course to the $90 course offered through Mayflower Council to determine which course you wish to take.
