Virtual Instructor Led Training on Zoom
This course will teach you to identify and manage life-threatening injuries and knowledge and skills to identify and treat injuries and illnesses when Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is hours away. The Wilderness First Aid Course covers all of the topics in a traditional, onsite Wilderness First Aid Course and meets the requirements for the Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of America, the American Camp Association, NICA, and many others.
This Virtual Instructor Led Training enables you to attend a Wilderness First Aid certification course and never leave your home. All classroom lectures, demonstrations, and presentations found in a traditional, onsite, two-day, sixteen-hour Wilderness First Aid certification course are provided using Zoom. Interact with your instructor and other students just as you would in a tradional WFA course. Also included is downloadable bonus content, electronic textbooks, graded quizzes and practice scenarios.
Virtual, High Fidelity, Skills Assessment – Participants will pair up in Zoom Breakout Rooms and take turns being patient and caregiver. You’ll demonstrate splinting skills, primary and secondary assessment skills and practice identifying and treating illnesses and injuries.
No prior medical experience required.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will earn an internationally recognized, two-year Wilderness First Aid certification.
This course is unique. I use a method that does not just teach first aid – my method illustrates Wilderness First Aid using intuitive, easy-to-understand diagrams that will help you remember. To write my book, I purchased textbooks from all of the major Wilderness Medical Schools and publications from the Wilderness Medical Society. From those books, – thousands of pages of text – I created 40 Wilderness First Aid patient care checklists. I then converted those checklists into easy to understand “medical algorithms” – patient care flow diagrams – and then published them in my book, Wilderness First Aid Made Easy. I use algorithms throughout this course and my onsite courses to enable students to visualize and remember the patient care process. Every student receives a free copy of my book.

Emergency Medical Services Educator
I am a National Registry Emergency Medical Technician and Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician. I hold instructor certifications in First Aid, CPR/AED, Basic Life Support, First Responder and Wilderness First Aid.
My life mission is to teach people with no medical background how they can save lives in the first critical minutes of a medical emergency. I have over three decades of teaching experience and I believe you will find my method of instruction to be enjoyable.
I am the author of three books, First Aid Emergency Care, Wilderness First Aid Made Easy and Emergency First Aid for New Parents. My books illustrate first aid care and treatment using intuitive “Yes-No” decision diagrams. These books significantly reduce the time first aid students spend taking notes in class and students who use my books report increased retention and achieve higher test scores. Students tell me that the book is “the Cliffs Notes of Wilderness First Aid.” The book and teaching method will increase your confidence during the scenario portions of the course and serve as an excellent review tool to help you keep your knowledge refreshed.
