Advanced Wilderness First Aid Certification Course
This intensive 4-day course provides in-depth information on medical and environmental emergencies alongside hands-on practice of backcountry first aid skills. Students learn both in the classroom and in the mountains, trails and streams at NOC’s Nantahala River campus.
With an emphasis on leadership, students learn to confidently take control of medical situations. Over 4-days students learn patient assessment, injury management and other necessary outdoor skills. This class goes into greater depth of the basic first aid subjects while emphasizing leadership skills. AWFA presents new skills such as litter packaging and traction splinting.
We believe in having a systematic approach to emergency situations so students can continue to develop their muscle memory, instincts, and improve reaction time for emergency situations.
This course includes American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) CPR and AED certification.
