Through SOLO, the Harvard Outing Club is offering Wilderness First Aid certification courses on the weekend of March 1-2. The WFA course covers the basics of assessment and response to a medical emergency in the wilderness, stressing the use of limited resources in a backcountry setting. It will consist of two eight-hour days of instruction held on Harvard’s campus in Cambridge, MA. The course is open to anyone, whether or not you’re affiliated with Harvard, and the certification is valid for two years. If you’d like to learn more about WFA, check out SOLO’s website here: http://www.soloschools.com/index.cfm?event=course.wfa
The cost is $125 for Harvard students, $130 for other students, and $150 for non-students. CPR training is available for an additional $35. Those who are re-certifying their Wilderness First Responder will need to pay an additional $15, which should be brought on the first day of the class.
Space is limited; to reserve a spot fill out the registration form here! (Be prepared to give us a check for the full course price by a week before the course.) If you have any questions, contact Sarah Rose at sarahrosecass [at] college [dot] harvard [dot] edu.
