Wilderness First Aid with CPR

This Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course prepares students for the unexpected. This fast paced, hands-on training is designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, outdoor enthusiasts, camp staff and individuals working in remote locations. This course is cooperatively hosted by North House Folk School and Stone Harbor Wilderness Supply. The class will take place on the North House campus on the harbor in Grand Marais, Minnesota.
The workshop’s focus is preparing students to care for people who become ill or injured far from definitive medical care. 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’ll have the knowledge, skills and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations.
The course is taught by seasoned instructors from National Outdoor Leadership School’s Wilderness Medicine Institute (WMI). Successful course completion earns you a WMI Wilderness First Aid certification as well as a WMI Adult & Child CPR certification. Both certifications are current for two years. Learning takes place both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather conditions.

Come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments. Cook County, MN year-round residents may request a $50 local discount.
