Wilderness First Aid (WFA)

Wilderness First Aid training, either 8-hour or 16-hour, is recommended for any researchers travelling to areas greater than 1 hour from emergency medical care. The 8-hour course is suitable for most researchers and includes CPR/AED certification. If your work is very remote, a 16-hour class may be more suitable.

We encourage participants to either share a draft Field Safety Plan for feedback, or schedule a brief consultation to collaborate on a plan if you don't have one already. To inquire about Wilderness First Aid or other training, or for help with your Field Safety Plan, email Heather at or fill out the Field Safety Training Information Request.
