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. Information about SOLO and the course curriculum can be found here:
Wilderness medicine courses are highly experiential, and combine classroom learning with hands-on practice and simulations. In addition to providing highly useful skills and information, they are just plain fun!
Registration is only $155, and the first 10 SDMB members who register will get a $25 gift card to Tucson Endurance Performance Center. As an added bonus, SDMB will provide lunch for both days.
