Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat January 5, 2019 - Sun January 6, 2019

The AWFA course goes into greater depth than the WFA on the basic first aid subjects. The course emphasizes leadership skills and presents new skills such as litter packaging and traction splinting. Students must have a current SOLO WFA certification in order to take the AWFA Part II.

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.
