Other Info: This course is taught by Cascade Raft and Kayak.  Participants will receive a 3-year certification from Sierra Rescue for WFA and 2-year for CPR.

This 16-hour class will fulfill NICA Coach Licensing Level 2 & 3 First Aid requirements. Open to all Level 1-3 NICA Coaches.

The Wilderness First Aid Course will meet all requirements outlined by the Wilderness Medical Society for the WFA certification, which will include Patient Assessment and Movement, as well as Managing Major Trauma, Wounds, and Musculoskeletal Injuries.  We will also devote time to Common Medical and Environmental Problems, particularly those relevant to Cycling Coaches and Leaders.

While we’ll cover the full spectrum of required topics, there will be an emphasis on simple strategies for handling common problems.  There will be time for questions and discussion in the highly interactive learning environment. Significant time will also be devoted to hands-on practice, scenarios, and case studies to help ingrain knowledge gained during lecture.
