Do you and your friends and family love to go outside? Explore? Hike? Swim or rock climb? Well, we have a treat for you. We had a great time doing this course in April with the Interns, and want to offer it again to the community.

Rather than panic if someone gets hurt, or sick, in the woods, wilderness or on a trail, you’ll be able to respond in a calm, skillful, manner. You might even save a life.

Join us for a professionally led Wilderness First Aid and CPR class over two days. The course is led by nationally renowned trainers from Stonehearth Outdoor Learning Opportunities (SOLO).

This Wilderness First Aid Course is 16 hours long (two days), and focuses on the basic skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies. This is a special opportunity as the training is not often offered in the Chattanooga Area.

SOLO LogoWith successful completion of the Course, which meets ACA guidelines, you will receive a SOLO WFA Certificate, which is good for two years.

Cost: $180 for the Two-Day course, add-on CPR Training for $40
