Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is a course for everyone planning a remote high adventure ranging from lay responders to medical professionals. It focuses on prevention, assessment, and treatment for an ill or injured person in a remote environment where definitive care by a physician and/or rapid transport is not readily available. This is defined as being an hour or more away from advanced care. WFA courses contain substantial medical information and teach skills to respond to medical emergencies in the wild. WFA training can and has enabled Scouts and Scouters to provide assessment and treatment miles from advanced care. A participant who successfully completes this 16-hour WFA course based on BSA curriculum will be certified as a WFA provider. This certification is valid for two years. Participants will learn how to assess, treat, and—when possible—keep emergencies under control within the scope of their training.
