2002 - Wilderness First Aid

Do you like to spend time outdoors? Accidents happen; if you or someone in your group got hurt, would you know what to do? People get hurt, sick, or lost. Many back country emergencies are preventable and even when bad things happen, sometimes the wrong care can make things worse.

Wilderness First Aid is the perfect course for the outdoor enthusiast or trip leader who wants more than basic level of first aid training for short trips with family, friends, and outdoor groups. The 16 hour long (two-day) program focuses on the skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies.

Those who complete the course and pass the written and practical skills will receive a Wilderness First Aid certification from SOLO which is valid for 2 years. SOLO is among the leaders in Wilderness Medicine Training and certification. Coffee and snacks will be provided each day. This course will be held at Wasserman Park in Merrimack, NH.

Course Requirements: Participant MUST have a current CPR certification upon completion of course. If you do not already hold this certification an optional  Adult CPR Recertification Course will be offered on Saturday evening for an additional fee of $50.00


Please note effective, January 1, 2020: Those students who are looking to use the Wilderness First Aid Course to renew their Wilderness First Responder Training SOLO has implemented a new policy regarding certification. Only students holding a current SOLO WFR Card will be allowed to use the two day Wilderness First Aid Course. If your WFR certification is from an organization other than SOLO; then you must take the 2 Day SOLO WFR Review course instead of Wilderness First Aid.
