This course follows a standardized program through the Emergency Care and Safety Institute and consists of 8 hours of lectures, 8 hours of practical training, a written test, and practice scenarios. A comprehensive textbook is included in the fee.
The next Wilderness First Aid School is coming up in April! This will be a weekend session, with classes from 8:30 to 4:00 on Sunday April 14 and Saturday April 20. On-line registration is open now. There will be another weekend only class in September. The October session will be 3 weeknights and a Saturday. Attendance is required at all classes to complete the course; however, that can happen over a few different sessions. WFA is required for CMC Leaders and at the core of our safety program, making it a critical element in the level of service that the CMC strives to provide.
The schedule for the remainder of 2013 is:
April – Sun 14 and Sat 20
September Sundays 15 and 22
October – Mondays 7, 14 and 21 and Sat 26
