From the Outdoor Recreation Club:
The Outdoor Recreation club is offering, for the second time, a
Wilderness First Aid (WFA) class. We are hiring a trained instructor
from Stonehearth Open Learning Opportunities (SOLO) to teach this
class. It is a fantastic class for anyone that goes outside. Even if
you just want to learn a little about first aid, this is also a
superior class and much more informative than the traditional First
Aid class. This class focuses a lot on immediate patient care and
reacting to an emergency situation. The class is designed to treat
minor injuries, and dress serious injuries until they can evacuated to
a hospital. It is a two year certification. It can also be used for
a WFR recert for WMA, NOLS or SOLO. I took the class last year and
used the information I learned few times last summer in the National
Park I worked out.
The class is Jan 17-18, about 8 hours each day. Saturday night there
is an optional Adult CPR class.
Cost for LU faculty and Staff $100 for WFA and an additional $35 for
CPR. You can take both or one class. I ask that you let me know by
the 17th of December, but if you have a change of heart, let me know
and I can probably fit you in.

I hope you all have a wonderful 10th and finals week.
