My friend Alyx of Shoestring Adventures coordinates fantastic trips and wants to make sure that adventurers are prepared to tackle what comes their way when outdoors.
Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is a great opportunity for you to learn more about how to handle the unexpected and keep you and your party safe when adventuring.
Next chance for you to take your WFA course AND experience a Shoestring Adventure weekend is coming up in early November. I have a discount code for you at the end of this post for $50 off your registration for this experience!
This course will take you on a 4-mile backpacking trip into the San Gabriel Mountains to historic Sturtevant Camp where the Wilderness Leadership Institute will host the 2nd annual Shoestring Adventures Wilderness First Aid and CPR Certification Course.
Fast paced and hands-on, the 16-hour WFA Course covers a wide range of wilderness medicine topics for people who enjoy or work in the outdoors. The curriculum designed Wilderness Medical Associates is recognized industry-wide, and the CPR Certification is valid for 3 years. Classroom lectures are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to apply your knowledge.
This course is not just for outdoor professionals. No previous first aid training or backpacking experience is required.
Limited spots available for this potentially life-saving weekend, so sign up today!
