Wilderness First Aid (Standard WFA) @ Gresham, OR
Our Wilderness First Aid course may be the best choice for weekend campers, people taking day hikes within cell phone coverage, and those who are just looking for basic instruction. If you like it and want more, you can always come back later and take a longer, more intensive course. Our WFA course meets the Boy Scouts of America and the American Camping Association trip leader requirements.
Our standard WFA is 3-days long; the practical session of our hybrid WFA is only 2-days but requires pre-course study and successful completion of an online exam in order to attend. Either course may be used to recertify current WMTC WAFA, WFR, & WEMT certifications. If you are interested in a hybrid WFA please visit the hybrid WFA website's home page for course details and read the blog articleIs a Hybrid Course in Wilderness Medicine Right for You?before registering and paying for the course.
This two-credit course is open to the public; please contact Josh Stratman for details.
Through the Wilderness Leadership and Experiential Education (WLEE) program, Mt. Hood fosters the skills and education necessary to produce competent outdoor leaders, guides and teachers. To learn more about the wilderness program and the school's other offerings, visit their website.
