Quest at Bloomsburg University is hosting a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) and Wilderness First Responder (WFR) Re-certification course on April 15th and 16th, 2006. We are sponsoring this course through the Wilderness Medicine Institute (WMI) of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) based out of Lander Wyoming.
The WMI of NOLS WFA/WFR Recertification course is an introductory level course designed to provide outdoor leaders, guides and rangers an introduction to First Aid and patient care in remote settings. Special topics include, but are not limited to: wound management and infection, realigning fractures and dislocations, improvised splinting techniques, patient monitoring and long-term management problems, plus up-to-date information on environmental emergencies. Emphasis is placed on principles of treatment and decision making, not the memorization of lists.

Upon successful completion of the course a two year WMI of NOLS Wilderness First Aid certification will be issued. All levels of training and experience are welcome. This course does not include CPR.

The cost for the course is $150 and includes all tuition and materials.

For those of you who might be an EMT or higher medically trained, in the summer we offer a Wilderness First Responder course which has CEU credits available.

If you have any questions or are interested in registering for the course, please contact us. I am also an instructor for WMI.
