About this course

This course is for initial WFA certification and is part of a hybrid online-hands on training package. 

How It Works: The first part of the course is online training and must be completed before hands on training. The second part of the course is hands-on training with Base Medical, after which you will receive your full Wilderness First Aid certification.
