The Ladies Offroad Network Wilderness First Aid (WFA) Certification Course is DIFFERENT than any other. Yes, you get your standardized 2-day certification that everyone does...but like everything we do here...we push it one step further. At the end of Day 2, you will be officially certified...but are you really ready to help in an emergency in the wilderness? All of the examples used during the class are 'offroad related' and on the 3rd day, we participate in different scenarios to accomplish while keeping the life of the victim as our priority to help you apply what you learned! Dan Barela and the team at RescueTNT are the knowledgbase instructors, Charlene is your hostess.
Bonus Active Violence Emergency Response Training (AVERT) Certifications will be added this year because we are in a hotel format. Each evening after dinner our instructors will host additional class hours on situational awareness topics.
Experience these learning sessions with other ladies that are similar in dedication to education and offroading. Lunch is included all 3 days and Dinner on Sunday and Monday. Transportation and lodging is easy. We will end with a certification ceremony.

Wilderness First Aid Certification
This course is for initial Wilderness First Aid (WFA) certification through the National Association of Search and Rescue. This course has an emphasis on scenarios based in the offroad remote setting. This course is mostly hands on and incorporates many of the incidents seen in off-road accidents and off-road emergencies. Fundamental rescue skills needed for those adventures where you may be alone for hours until rescue arrives.
This course is great for people of all experience levels, and is best suited for those who recreate outdoors where EMS response can be expected in a timely manner (fewer than eight hours). You'll learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for injuries and illnesses common in the outdoors, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions.
AVERT – Active Violence Emergency Response Training
RescueTNT is now offering a class on being aware of your situation. Always taking our experiences to the next level, when Dan told me about this I knew it needed to be added to our experience. It is important that you as a woman, and in the times we live in today, are aware and ready to react. This is now a certification course that will be hosted on Sunday and Monday night.
Are you prepared to react in a high stress environment? Dont know if you are for sure? Our course will not only highlight if you are truly prepared to react in a stressful environment but it will also teach you situational awareness, basic critical care and how best to exit a stressful environment in the safest manner possible. With AVERT – Active Violence Emergency Response Training - you'll learn how to recognize the signs of danger, react appropriately, and make rapid survival decisions.
