PATC-MS will sponsor a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course August 15-16 (full-day Saturday and Sunday). This course will be climbing-oriented with content and exercises tailored to climbing situations (leader falls, hypothermia, etc.). Successful completion of this course will result in Red Cross WFA certification for two years.

Registration is $136.50 pp. The cost for this course is very competitive because of our arrangements and a subsidy from the club.

WFA is the typical certification level of non-professional settings. If you are interested in certification associated with employment in the outdoor industry the Wilderness First Responder (WFR) may be more appropriate.
