Default Wilderness First Aid Course & Certification

We all prepare our vehicles for an overland trip. Are you prepared for a medical emergency in the backcountry? Do you need Wilderness First Aid Certification for job requirements?

I will be holding Wilderness First Aid classes with certification in various locations throughout Colorado mid-July through August, 2011. I hold private and open classes for organizations and individuals.

If you'd like to sign up for the course or would like to hold a class for your organization. PM me. Or contact me at kristinahall at

This is a fun and fast paced class with lots of scenarios and hands on learning. The class is 16 hours over 2 days. The WRFA is especially important to know while traveling for extended periods in the back country--either via foot, bicycle, motorcycle or car.

I work in partnership with the American Red Cross--I am an authorized Instructor and Instructor Trainer and teache CPR and Wilderness and Remote First Aid Training courses that will certify participants for 2 years with the American Red Cross.

This class will include CPR certification as well.

Here is the description of the course per the American Red Cross web site:
Designed for scouts, outdoor enthusiasts and those working in remote environments, this course teaches how to respond to an emergency when help may be delayed. This course is based on the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines and meets OSHA’s Best Practices for Workplace First Aid Training Programs.

Topics include:
Primary and Secondary Assessments
Head (Brain), Neck and Spinal Injuries
Heat-Related Emergencies
Altitude-Related Illnesses
Allergies and Anaphylaxis
