About the course.

Prepare for the unexpected in this hands-on introduction to a wilderness medicine program taught by experienced professionals. This training is geared towards adult Scout leaders preparing for a Scout High Adventure Base or a Scout wilderness activity. All four of the BSA high-adventure bases require at least one person per trek (two per trek at Philmont Scout Ranch) to be current in WFA through one of the BSA’s approved providers.

During this 2½-day course, you will learn how to provide effective first aid treatments for common outdoor injuries and illnesses, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions. This course is based on the specific curriculum developed by the BSA, which includes a management dimension that most course fail to address. Instruction will take place in classrooms, as well as outdoor settings regardless of weather, so be prepared for any condition.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive certification from the Emergency Care & Safety Institute, which meets the BSA’s requirements for WFA training.

Lead Instructors: Cash Murphey, Chris Lucsik, and Wayne Wong.
