Wilderness First Aid

Wilderness First AidThe 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.

No meals will be provided.

A pre-requisite for the course is current (taken within 2 years) 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 & C
