This 16-hour Wilderness First Aid course provides students with an introductory understanding to wilderness first aid. Hand-on course labs, scenarios and repetition ensure students are engaged and learning for the duration of the course. NOC Wilderness Medicine courses combine multiple styles of learning to help you learn and remember course information after the course is complete.


The benefits of getting the WFA certification include increased preparedness, professionalism, and confidence as well as eligibility for special fun rides during which we will practice scenarios in order to keep accident response skills fresh and accessible.
