The City of Farmington and ORII is partnering with Treeline Perspectives Outdoor Training Center to bring the 2-day WFA training to Farmington on Saturday & Sunday, April 20th & 21st.  Participants will receive a 2-year certification through the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). Course runs from 8:00am-5:00pm each day. 

This course is great for people of all experience levels, and is best suited for those who recreate outdoors where EMS response can be expected in a timely manner (fewer than eight hours). You'll learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for injuries and illnesses common in the outdoors, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions.

You'll learn both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather, so come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments!

Registration fee is $280.00. Payment is required to reserve your spot. For details and registration, visit here.
