Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is the assessment of and treatment given to an ill or injured person in a remote environment where definitive care by a physician and/or rapid transport is not readily available.
Training in Wilderness First Aid will prepare you to safely participate in unit outdoor adventures and will qualify you to attend the National Jamboree or any BSA High Adventure base. Participants will learn how to assess, treat, and (when possible) contain emergencies within the scope of their training. Youth and adult Scout leaders over age 14 are invited to participate and earn their certification. Links displayed below will take you to online registration for a training course. Attendance on all dates listed is required to complete the training.
