The Wilderness First Aid Course will meet all requirements outlined by NICA for the WFA NICA approved certification, which will include Patient Assessment and Movement, as well as Managing Major Trauma, Wounds, and Musculoskeletal Injuries. We will also devote time to Common Medical and Environmental Problems, particularly those relevant to Cycling Coaches and Leaders.
While we’ll cover the full spectrum of required topics, there will be an emphasis on simple strategies for handling common problems. There will be time for questions and discussion in the highly interactive learning environment. Significant time will also be devoted to hands-on practice, scenarios, and case studies to help ingrain knowledge gained during lecture.
NICA Approved WFA, First Aid and CPR/AED course on Saturday January 22nd, 2022 at 8am.
