Current certification in CPR and AED is required to attend the WRFA training. This combination course offers all training to prepare you for wilderness adventures in a two-day format of official Red Cross training at a reduced price.
The Boy Scouts of America worked with the Red Cross to develop this curriculum specifically for Scouts BSA crews going on wilderness treks, backpacking trips, and campouts. Scout groups going to the national BSA high adventure bases of Philmont, Northern Tier, Sea Base, or the Summit are required to have people with this certification in their group.
Scout leaders that do their own treks should also have this training to be prepared to identify, assess, and address situations requiring first aid in remote environments.
CPR and AED training are done first, followed by an active, hands-on, skills-focused WRFA session. See the WRFA info page for more details about what is covered.
If scheduled public sessions are full or don't fit your schedule, Contact Me about hosting a session at your location around Minnesota.
Two 2-year Red Cross certifications are presented when you complete the course, for CPR/AED and for WRFA.
