Event Description

Practical hands-on exercises and scenarios will improve retention and confidence. Developed for the public from years of teaching this course to Search & Rescue professionals, students now benefit by learning the most current practices. These skills not only apply just to hiking, but anytime we're outdoors. We welcome students from all outdoor pursuits - scout leaders, mountain bikers, and even those who just enjoy relaxing at the family BBQ. Having the knowledge, skills, and confidence to step up and help in a time of need is invaluable.

Upon completion, students will receive a 2-year ASHI WFA certification, which is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA) and accepted by Scouts BSA and GSUSA.
