Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course

Ole Miss Outdoors is hosting a Hybrid Wilderness First Aid certification (WFA) on December 18. There is online course work that must be completed before the in-person class on December 18, 2021. If you hold a current SOLO WFR certification, you can take this course to recertify.

Two WFA certified individuals are required on BSA high-adventure treks (Philmont, Sea Base, Northern Tier, Summit). Being at least 14 years old and completing a CPR and AED certification course led by a nationally recognized provider are the only prerequisites. Having basic first-aid training is very helpful but it is not a prerequisite.

Registration is through the Ole Miss Outdoors program.

Wilderness First Aid (Hybrid) Certification (2 year certification)

December 18, 2021 (one in-person day)

SOLO’s Hybrid Wilderness First Aid course covers the same content as the traditional Wilderness First Aid. The difference between the programs is that the hybrid course consists of 8 hours of pre-course online learning and only one, in-person practical day. The Hybrid WFA is 16 hours long (8 hours online and 8 hours in person) and focuses on the basic skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies. CPR is included but optional, and will be held the evening of Dec. 17th.
