Course Fact Sheet

 
  • PREREQUISITE
    Students must be at least 16 years old to participate in this course. 16 and 17 year olds must provide written proof of parental consent.
  • CERTIFICATIONS AVAILABLE
    All students who successfully complete the WAFA course will receive a WAFA certification card, an Anaphylaxis certification card and an Adult CPR certification card from Wilderness Medical Associates. These certifications remain valid for three years.

    The WAFA may be used as a recertification option, in conjunction with a Recertification Package, for those with a current WMA Wilderness First Responder or Wilderness EMT certification. Contact the Wilderness Medical Associates office for more details.

    The Wilderness Medical Associates WAFA course meets or exceeds all requirements of other similarly houred courses (i.e. Red Cross Responding to Emergencies, etc.).

  • CREDENTIALS
    Wilderness Medical Associates courses are widely considered the most complete medical training for outdoor professionals. Our courses are preferred by such organizations as Outward Bound, The National Park Service, The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, many colleges and universities, and the FBI. As Canoe Magazine stated, "Wilderness Medical Associates has become the de facto standard in wilderness medical training."
  • CLASS FORMAT
    36 hours over 4 days. Mornings are devoted to lectures and exams. Afternoons are devoted to practical hands-on sessions and rescue simulations. Expect one or two rescue simulations with made-up victims and stage blood that will be video taped for enhanced learning. Evenings are reserved for study and assignments.
  • CONTENT
    Topics include patient assessment, body systems, equipment improvisation, trauma, environmental medicine, toxins, backcountry medicine, some wilderness protocols and wilderness rescue.
  • TEXTS
    The cost of the course includes handouts, a workbook, The Outward Bound Wilderness First Aid Handbook, and The Wilderness Medical Associates Field Guide.
  • GRADES
    Are based on attendance (100% attendance is required), course participation, performance on both written and practical final exams. To pass, students must have a cumulative average of 80% or better.

    Not everyone passes this course!

10th Annual Tellico River Clean Up

Saturday, March 13th

 

Registration 8 to 9 am at the Tellico Ranger Station

 

Its time for spring cleaning on the Tellico River, so grab a buddy, a pair of gloves, and join us for a great day of sprucing up the forest and hauling off the trash that has accumulated over the winter.  Trash bags and pickup will be provided.  Bring gloves, wear sturdy shoes and long sleeves/long pants.

 

We beat the TVCC in attendance last year by one person.  Lets try and make it two in a row.

 

The cleanup is sponsored by the Cherokee National Forest/Tellico Ranger District, Trout Unlimited, and the Southern 4wheel Drive Association.

 

For more information contact Mary Beth Kinney -
