Why I Created This Course

When I attended my first WFA Certification course as a student, I was overwhelmed by the amount of information being thrown at me. It was like drinking from a firehose and attempting not to drown. There was no way I could absorb all of the information being delivered. When I graduated I was happy to have earned my certification, but I was not confident that I could remember what I learned.

A few years later when I decided to earn my WFA Instructor certification, I attended six WFA courses over a three month period as part of the certification process. In each class I witnessed students experiencing the same information overload frustration I felt the first time I attended a WFA course.

WFA training providers are still using teaching methods from the 1970’s. They are using topic-centric textbooks where the information is not presented in order, confusing students as they hop around in the textbook during the course. No resources are being provided to assist in reviewing what they learned and refreshing their knowledge after graduation.

I decided to create a WFA course using modern teaching methodologies and provide resources to make Wilderness First Aid easy to learn and easy to remember. I created a course that builds your self-efficacy to confidently provide first aid. 

 

Rather than using a textbook that is topic-centric, I created a workflow-centric textbook that delivers information in the order that it is used. Workflow-centric textbooks increase student understanding and knowledge retention since they can see the steps used in identifying and treating illnesses and injuries.

Furthermore, I created the textbook to be interactive by including QR Codes and links where you can view the presentation explaining the workflow. You are able to review and refresh your knowledge.

My training philosophy is based on self-efficacy. That is, instilling in you the competence and confidence to provide first aid in a medical emergency and continue to provide care until the patient is handed off to medical professionals. Unlike legacy Wilderness First Aid courses, you will have the time and the resources to learn and retain what you learn. You will not be trained just to pass a test at the end of the course. As a student at the School of First Aid, you will be trained for the ultimate test – when you are the only thing standing between the patient and the grave.
