WFA for Climbers (WFA-C)
This course is designed for the climbers interested in learning more about how to respond in the event of a backcountry emergency. The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course is a great introduction to wilderness medicine and basic life support skills. This training focuses on prevention, assessment and treatment of injuries and illnesses common to climbing.
This specialty course is taught by Desert Mountain Medicine instructors who are employed as either professional climbing guides, or outdoor educators, in combination with emergency medicine (e.g., emergency department, mountain rescue, bike patrol or EMS).
