Learn how to protect yourself from wilderness hazards and do first aid outdoors or anywhere. We use vivid slides and an interactive teaching style to introduce the concepts, then train you to do the skills and improvise care with whatever you carry for your outdoor trips. National certification is valid for 2 years. Topics include:
Wilderness First Aid in Berkeley. January 19-20, 2019
Saturday January 19, 2018: 8:00 - 5:00;
Sunday January 20, 9 to 5
at the Sierra Club Office, 2530 San Pablo Ave. Suite #1, Berkeley CA
2 options: Basic Wilderness First Aid (Saturday only)
OR Wilderness First Aid (Saturday and Sunday)
These courses are sponsored by the Activities Committee of the Sierra Club (S.F. Bay Chapter), and meet the first aid requirements for Sierra Club outings leaders. Those who do Saturday only will be certified in Basic wilderness First Aid. Those who do both days will learn more advanced skills, do role-playing scenarios, and be certified in Wilderness First Aid. Non-members can register if we have space, though they will not be eligible for the Sierra Club discount, OR they can join the Sierra Club and then register as members.
