Advanced Wilderness First Aid

(SOLO AWFA Certification)

Course Information:

The AWFA is 16 hours long (two days), and is taught by a professional wilderness first aid instructor  from Stonehearth Open Learning Opportunities (SOLO) of Conway, NH.  This advanced course goes into greater depth than the SOLO 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.   During the course, there is ongoing evaluation of practical skills, and there are written assessments throughout the course.
