Wilderness First Aid Required for High Adventure Treks

Wilderness First Aid

WILDERNESS FIRST AID CLASS OFFERED!!

The Los Padres Council is pleased to once again offer a Wilderness First Aid Course.  This course is now required for all units that attend one of the National High Adventure Base Programs (Philmont, Sea Base, Northern Tier).  It is also a great course to take for all units that are going on a backcountry trip.

Wilderness First Aid is invaluable to you, the unit or trek leader, as it goes well beyond your basic first aid.  When you are hours from available emergency medical services, you will be really thankful that you took this course!  This course is 16 hours in length, but invaluable in the resources you will learn to use.

A pre-requisite for the course is current certification in Adult CPR and AED (automatic external defibrillator).  You will need to bring a copy of your card to the course.  ALL participants must be at least 16 years of age and bring a current BSA Medical, Parts A & B.

Costs for the Wilderness First Aid course:  Los Padres Council Scouters $185.00 per person; Non Los Padres Council Scouters  $200.00; Non-scout community members $235.  Costs include the course, course materials, supplies, and certification card.

PLEASE NOTE THE MINIMUM AGE FOR THE COURSE IS 16.

PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO LOS PADRES COUNCIL SCOUTERS FIRST, THEN OTHER COUNCIL SCOUTERS, THEN NON-SCOUT COMMUNITY MEMBERS

REGISTRATION MUST BE RECEIVED BY FRIDAY MARCH 17, 2016

You must attend all course sessions and participate fully - this is a physically demanding course.
