Wilderness First Aid

The Wilderness First Aid Training is a 16-hour, hands-on course to give Scouts the experience needed to handle illness and injury when medical care is more than an hour away. When paired with CPR/AED certifications, Scouts are well prepared to deal with emergencies and routine medical issues that may occur on an outdoor adventure.

Scouts must be 14 years of age to take the Wilderness First Aid training course.
