Disaster – Travel – Wilderness First Aid Certification Course
Learn how to save life and limb when and where professional help is not immediately available.

The SOLO WFA 2-year certification, approved by the American Camping Association, Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts-USA and more, offers classroom instruction with Q&A that are interwoven with practical work and problem-solving exercises. Hands-on experience during scenarios comprise approximately 50% of class helping you come away with do-it-yourself care-giving confidence. No prerequisites. Minimum age is 13.

work with individual archers or up to two friend-or-family archers to help
them become better, more consistent shooters. Sessions run one hour
