SDMB/SOLO Wilderness First Aid Course
Saturday & Sunday, May 30-31, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Pima County NRPR Building
3500 W. River Rd, Tucson, AZ 85741

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:

http://soloschools.com/wilderness-first-aid-wfa/

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.

There are 2 steps to registration:

First, go the link below and register through Paypal.

Second, email trailsteward@sdmb.org to confirm your payment and attendance. Be sure to say if you’re an SDMB member so we can save your Tucson Endurance Performance Center gift card!

What a fantastic opportunity! Is this a one off, or something you offer on a recurring basis? (e.g. yearly)

We would love to see it become a yearly event, as this kind of training is important for mountain bikers to have. It will really depend on the response from this one, as it is our first time offering the WFA training, and on how much interest there is in additional trainings,.

Hope to see you at the course!
