Wilderness First Aid Certification – Navajo Nation 2019

16-Hour Wilderness Herbal First Aid Certification in Navajo Nation in Crystal, NM. The course will be taught by Sam Coffman.

This is a 24 hour course taught over 3 days (8 hours per day) and includes both a conventional 16-Hour Wilderness First Aid (WFA) Certification through Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI) as well as more than 8 hours of herbal first aid training.

Herbal First Aid information is integrated into the curriculum every day in order to create a holistic model of remote or post-disaster care that emphasizes the essentials of first aid care while also introducing fundamental plant-medicine concepts that apply to austere or post-disaster environments.

The tuition for this course includes two books:

Wilderness First Aid: Emergency Care for Remote Locations. 3rd Edition, Jones & Bartlett Press

-Wound Care and Infection Management using herbs
-Injury, shock, pain and herbs
-Respiratory herbal first response
-Gastrointestinal herbal first response
-Urinary herbal first response

Hands-on training and practice is emphasized very strongly throughout this 3-day intensive.
