Wilderness First Aid

Of all the skill sets hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts may possess, backcountry medical training is perhaps the epitome of value. If you hike and spend time in remote locations outside of the “golden hour” (meaning an hour or more from typical urban medical services), dealing with injury or illness at some point — even if it’s not your own — is likely. Getting the proper training will prepare you for this unwelcome eventuality. And do know this: Redline Guiding and SOLO, both, strongly encourage preparedness.

To better add to the intrinsic value of this important education, we’re offering a few specially discounted course opportunities so that you may earn your Wilderness First Aid (WFA) certification. In cooperation with the SOLO School of Wilderness Medicine, we are offering a handful of WFA classes this summer and fall. What follows is the information you’ll need to take advantage of this while you can. We really want you to do this. You learn, everyone wins. Earn your WFA credential this year and be a better hiker and outdoorsman.

Course Description

Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is SOLO’s most popular course and it creates a solid foundation in the basics of backcountry medical care. Started as the “Mountain/Woods First Aid” course in 1975, this was the first course of its kind in the United States, and it is the curriculum upon which all other backcountry medicine courses are based.

The WFA course is an intensive 16 hours long (two days), and focuses on the basic skills of:

  • » Response and Assessment
  • » Musculoskeletal Injuries
  • » Environmental Emergencies
  • » Survival Skills
  • » Soft Tissue Injuries
  • » Medical Emergencies
