The details are finalized and registration is live for the SDMB/SOLO Wilderness First Aid course, Saturday and Sunday May 30 and 31!

As mountain bikers, trail builders, hikers, and all-around outdoor enthusiasts we spend lots of time in the backcountry and in risky situations.  Ordinary first-aid training doesn’t cover the types of medical emergencies that can occur in the backcountry, and adequate training and preparation can make the difference between a near-miss and a helivac, or worse…

The Wilderness First Aid course will be taught by SOLO, the oldest school of wilderness medicine in the U.S. Those who complete it will receive a 2-year WFA certification. Find more information about SOLO and the course curriculum.

Wilderness medicine courses are highly experiential, and combine classroom learning with hands-on practice and simulations.  This course will be taught by James Corbin of the Central Arizona Mountain Rescue Association (CAMBA).  In addition to providing highly useful skills and information, they are just plain fun!
