Wilderness First Aid Training
We have arranged with SOLO for a special Wilderness First Aid course to be offered at Thorne (near Sombrero Marsh). The class is $195 and all but $10 of that will be reimbursed to those who become (or are already) certified outings leaders. Ten percent of the proceeds from this course will go to Boulder Valley ICO. Click here to register for the course.
The course covers first aid protocols that are tailored to the backcountry. The course does not include CPR, but CPR is not required for outings leader certification. The course does include training in Epi-pen auto-injection and, so, will permit students to carry Epi to administer to participants on ICO outings.
The course is limited to 24 students, so early registration is encouraged. The course will be open to the general public and will be promoted by Thorne to the various organizations that are part of the Nature Kids collaborative, so the course is likely to fill up.
