Whether spending time in the backcountry is your passion or your profession, you should never have to ask, “What do I do now?” CBC is partnering with NOLS Wilderness Medicine to offer a comprehensive 20-hour, two-day course with CPR that will teach you the wilderness medicine skills you need to recreate with confidence in the backcountry. In just two days, you will learn the knowledge, skills, and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations. From the Patient Assessment System through traumatic, medical, and environmental emergencies, you’ll experience a wide variety of topics designed to prepare you to act if an accident occurs. This course is ideal for trip leaders, camp staff, novices, outdoor enthusiasts, and individuals in remote locations.
No prerequisites. Successful completion results in a Wilderness First Aid certification. If you already hold a NOLS Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA), Wilderness First Responder (WFR), or Wilderness EMT (WEMT) card, you may be able to use the WFA course to recertify. (Please contact NOLS to find out if you qualify.)
Registered 16 & 17-year-olds must arrive with a completed Release of Liability form, but do NOT need an accompanying adult. Participants younger than 16 must contact NOLS (Wilderness_Medicine_Admissions@nols.edu) for approval before registering.
*Reminder - this is not a CBC youth program. This is a community and volunteer training opportunity for adults and students age 16 and older. A percentage of the course fees supports CBC's free youth programming.
