Wilderness First Aid Training

Wilderness areas and remote environments may prevent immediate emergency medical services (EMS) response. That's why Wilderness First Aid training is required for any high adventure treks, including those at Philmont Scout Reservation. With Wilderness First Aid training, you'll learn how to respond to emergencies and care for common injuries in areas where professional responders may be hours or days away.

Wilderness First Aid is a 16-hour course. This hybrid course has an 8-hour online component and an 8-hour in-person component. The online component is a prerequisite for the in-person component. You must pass the online examination and bring the certificate to participate in the in-person course.
