Wilderness First Aid Class/CPR & AED Training

Posted by Ryan on February 1, 2017

Troop/Crew 16 is hosting a Wilderness First Aid & CPR/AED training for any adult or scout over the age 14.  You are cordially invited to register for this training/recertification through the following link.  If you took the training in November 2014 then this would be a great time to get recertified.  If you have never taken this training then this would be a great time to get this training.  BSA policy requires at least 1 member be certified both Wilderness First Aid and CPR for any high adventure outing.  Troop 16 policy has been to try and have multiple adults trained so that we can assist each other in any emergency.

The best part is that since we are hosting this event, the cost is reduced for any active Troop/Crew 16 participant to $100.  Please take advantage of this training so that you are ready for any high adventure opportunities in the future.  This could include National High Adventure bases as well as Mini High Adventures.

The Wilderness First Aid training is valid for 3 years and the CPR/AED training is valid for 2 years.  The training will be held here in Parker at Colorado Early Colleges Parker.  The event is Friday, Feb. 10 from 6 to 10pm and Saturday, Feb. 11 from 8am to 8pm.  CPR recertification is from 7 to 8pm on Saturday.  Wilderness First Aid recertification is from 8am to Noon on Saturday.

If you have any questions please contact Ryan Mead.
