WFA Now Offered at Miller’s Landing!

Miller’s Landing is now offering a Wilderness First Aid Class to help educate and serve our community through affordable and in-depth wilderness medical classes.

This 3-day course is intensive and covers principles of preventing and treating wilderness injuries; ideal for those who spend time recreating, working, or living in wilderness settings.

Students will be certified through The National Association For Search and Rescue (NASAR) by a medical professional who represents a wide range of intersectionalities and is ready to teach you valuable leadership, decision making and communication skills.  Read more about the instructor below. They are dually skilled outdoor educators and medical professionals with years of experience working complex rescues and guiding groups in remote, and dynamic environments.

Wilderness First Aid (WFA) Overview

WFA course is best for outdoor enthusiasts, entry-level guides, parents or guardians, volunteers in the outdoors or before any major wilderness trip where medical/extrication equipment is limited, communication methods are spotty, weather and terrain are varied, and medical/rescue support is delayed.

Learn everything from rescue operations, evacuation types, patient care, leadership, risk mitigation for the environment and activity, signs/symptoms of medical, traumatic, and environmental illnesses, injuries and much more during this multi-day class.

Wilderness First Responder Recertification (WFR) Overview

If you have your Wilderness First Responder and want to recertify, this class is for you! Certification holders have a one-year grace period to recertify.
