Description:

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, sometimes 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-and maybe even save a life.

WHERE AND WHEN IS IT HELD?

IS THERE AN EXAM?

DO I GET CERTIFIED?

DOES THE WFA COUNT AS CONTINUING EDUCATION?
