Advanced Wilderness First Aid (AWFA) Part II and WFA Recertification

Trip dates: Saturday, December 2, 2017 8:00 AM to Sunday, December 3, 2017 5:00 PM

The AWFA course goes into greater depth than the WFA on the basic first aid subjects. The course emphasizes leadership skills and presents new skills such as litter packaging and traction splinting. Students must have a current SOLO WFA certification in order to take the AWFA Part II. The Advanced Wilderness First Aid (AWFA) course will help you prepare for the unexpected. This fast-paced, hands-on training is designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts and individuals working in remote locations. It will introduce you to caring for people who become ill or injured far from definitive medical care. Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning. At the end of the course, you'll have the knowledge, skills and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations. This class will be held at the beautiful Thoreau Outing Club in Concord Ma 235 Forest Ridge Rd concord Ma http://www.thoreau.com/ directions go on to the Thoreau club web page and hit the button for directions, detailed from your front door.
