Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA)night-scenario_1

This course is perfect for the non-medical professional, employed as a camp counselor/chaperone, recreational staff, volunteer park interpreter, outdoor guide/educator for whom first aid delivery is often a secondary responsibility or as a second rescuer for a higher trained person.
