Tahoe Rim Trail Association offers spring backcountry course
This spring, the Tahoe Rim Trail Association is offering a course designed for individuals to stay safe while having fun in the backcountry.
The two-day Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course is the industry standard for professional outdoor leaders and will provide you with the tools to make critical medical and evacuation decisions in remote locations. TRTA and Wilderness Medicine of NOLS are hosting the WFA course, which will help you prepare for the unexpected.
This fast paced, hands-on training is designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts and individuals working in remote locations for extended periods of time. Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning. At the end of the course, you will receive a two-year certification and have the knowledge, skills and ability to make rescues in the backcountry.
