This is a private event instructed by Rocky Mountain Adventure Medic and we require minimum 8 people to cover costs. [Typical WFA would be 30-40 people.] and an opportunity to be certified in wilderness first aid [WFA]. Since it is private, we are required to find our own venue and Foothills Alliance Church has offered their space for free to host our WFA event.

This is an invaluable tool for all outdoor enthusiasts especially if you are a coordinator or taking family and friends into the back country.

The event is WFA 40 Hour certification and WFA 20 Hour Re-certification. There will be pre-event homework for re- certification participants.

COURSE is 2 - 4 day. 2 Full 8 hour days for WFA Re-certification and 4 Full days for WFA certification. 8 AM - 5PM: STARTS TUE SEP 22 - ENDS FRI SEP 25

For those re-certifying, due to covid-19, the government has allowed expired WFA certificates between March - May 2020 to be extended only to the end of Sep 30. After Sep 30 you are required to take the full 40 WFA certification course.

NOTE: Guests are welcome on this event but need to sign-up as a member. [This first event is free for guest.]
