Learn how to treat an injury or illness in the backcountry where help is delayed. This two-day, hands-on, interactive class led by NW Responder has been customized over the years for our hike leaders and shepherds. The first day is spent indoors followed by a field session on day two. Upon successful completion each student receives a Northwest Responder two-year Wilderness First Aid certification card. The program follows the basic outline of the NOLS and Red Cross two-day Wilderness First Aid course.
There is an add-on CPR certification (in combination with WFA training) directly following Day 1 of the WFA, from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. Friends hike leaders and shepherds are required to have CPR certification.
Reserve your spot for the CPR training by submitting an additional ticket below. Your total fee for both courses will be $175.
Friends offers a $60 subsidized discount for Hike Program volunteers to attend this course. Contact Kate Lindberg for the discount code: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Advanced registration has ended as of May 3. For registered participants, we cannot issue refunds for cancellations after May 3 unless another participant takes your spot.
