The MN governor announced changes to the pandemic guidelines today. After May 28, the only extra pandemic requirement for classes will be that participants wear masks. I am opening training sessions for everyone. If you need Wilderness & Remote First Aid training, and a location where the training might be held, I am available after June 20 - please Contact Me to schedule a class.

The MN governor announced changes to social distancing requirements on Friday, and the vaccine roll-out is progressing faster than planned, so most adults should be able to get vaccinated by June. I am opening training sessions for people that have been vaccinated. If you have a couple, or few, or many people that need Wilderness & Remote First Aid training, and a location where the training might be held, please Contact Me so we can find a date to schedule a convenient session for you.

Since pandemic numbers continue to be unacceptably high, I plan to offer training to participants that have been vaccinated, after I have been vaccinated. My hope is that this will begin in April 2021, but I have no control over that. It appears that all the WRFA sessions I mentioned in the previous bullet of November 9 have been cancelled up to April, so I know of no other recourse for the training at this time.
November 9, 2020
With the current trajectory of pandemic numbers, I will be presenting no WRFA training until 2021. At this time, REI has some Wilderness First Aid training sessions scheduled that may or may not be held - see this page.
September 25, 2020
There have been no changes to the Red Cross guidelines. No WRFA training for at least the next 6 weeks.
May 17, 2020
Based on current MN government recommendations, all training sessions have been removed from the registration system. At this point, Red Cross directions for WRFA have not changed. Gatherings of many people for extended lengths of time are not appropriate. I expect no changes in the next two weeks that will allow training in June or July.
Whenever in-person training is again allowed, I will send an email to all addresses of User Accounts on this system letting them know of the change.
Stay Safe in your outdoors adventures.
