Wilderness First Aid (WFA)

The BOEALPS Wilderness First Aid (WFA) class is designed to prepare you to deal effectively with accidents that can occur in remote areas where professional medical help is not readily available.

The BOEALPS WFA class is hosted by wilderness medicine professionals from Remote Medical Training (RMT), and includes lectures, skills practice, demos and hands-on scenarios.  Attendance to all class sessions, whether virtual or in-person, is required to complete the WFA class and obtain a two-year certification.

This course is highly recommended for all BOEALPS members and volunteers and is a recognized certification meeting the requirements of the BOEALPS Basic Class (BMC) for BMC graduates who aspire to become BMC Instructors.
