Wilderness First Aid

WMTC Wilderness First Aid (WFA) courses are designed to introduce you to the concepts of medical care in a wilderness setting. The course focuses on Basic Life Support skills, minor trauma, selected environmental topics, spine assessment and the ruling out process, allergic and toxic reactions, and “common” medical emergencies. As with all our courses, the majority of time is spent in hands-on skills practice and simulations.
For more information, visit Wilderness Medicine Training Center.

This course includes an online component that must be completed before the hands-on portion of the trip.


This course can also be used to re-certify for the Wilderness First Responder certification.
