This course is a great place to start for anyone who wants to be much more medically self-sufficient. The usage for this material ranges from just being able to take care of your own family in a home emergency, to backpacking, hiking or camping trips, to living in a more rural area, to being stranded in a remote location, to a hurricane Katrina (or worse) situation.

About the WFA Certification course:

16 hours will include primary and secondary survey, extrication, diagnosing and treating a wide variety of trauma and life-threatening situations, splinting, bandaging, high altitude injuries, heat and cold injuries, disease and infection, snake and insect bites & stings, shock, head injuries, water purification, fluid replacement, building first aid kits and much more.

At least 50% of this class is hands-on training and practice. You can’t really learn these skills without the pressure of having to perform the tasks in the classroom to start with.

The testing is both hands-on and a written test.

The certification is provided by ECSI, which is created, endorsed and underwritten by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP).

A certification card is issued which is valid for 2 years.
