CPR/AED and Wilderness First Aid Trainings

Twice a year the Illowa Council will host a CPR/AED or Wilderness First Aid Training at the Council Service Center or Camp Loud Thunder.  If we do have an upcoming training, you will find registration information located on this page.

Red Cross Wilderness First Aid Training

This class is designed to give you solid first aid skills in a wilderness setting. This course teaches first aid skills for situations in which emergency care is delayed for long periods, or self evacuation is necessary. Includes injury prevention, proper advanced preparation, basic and more advanced first aid techniques, short-distance transfer and evacuation techniques.

Participants need to be at least 16 years old and must have a valid CPR/AED certification to begin the WFA training course. CPR/AED training is a Friday night ‘add-on’ option for this course.

Wilderness First Aid certification is a required course for at least one adult leader on any BSA high adventure trip. However, it is recommended that two adult leaders get trained.
