Wilderness First Aid Training

This 16 hour Wilderness First Aid curriculum is offered by New Jersey Search & Rescue (NJSAR), and fulfills the requirements of BSA Wilderness First Aid.  Richard Savino is the coordinator of this class and will be assisted by members of NJSAR.

All classes will be taught at the NJSAR headquarters located at the Ramapo Reservation County Park, Route 202 in Mahwah NJ.  Evening sessions are 6:30 PM to 10:30 PM and the weekend sessions are 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.   The weekend session is outdoors for much of the day and participants are required to bring lunch, appropriate clothing and a typical pack and first aid supplies.

CPR is a prerequisite for this course and is not included in the curriculum.

There are two sessions with staggered dates.  Please register for session A or B.  They can accommodate a limited number of people who may have to swap class due to work commitments.  Please identify the session you wish to attend.  You must attend in numerical order.   Textbooks will be distributed on the first day of class. NJSAR may cancel or combine the classes if registration is less than twelve.    A written test and practical exam is required at the conclusion of the course.
