What is Remote First Aid (formerly Wilderness and Remote First Aid)?
Firstly, the Canadian Red Cross Wilderness and Remote First Aid (WRFA) will be renamed “Remote First Aid” in the Spring of 2020! This class is for those that require the foundation, principles and skills to be “Safety Prepared” when in remote environments or in the wilderness.
Remote First Aid (RFA) is also known as wilderness first aid training. This Red Cross certification course is focused on developing skills to treat injuries and learn how to improvise with equipment. These remote/wilderness first responder skills will help save lives when in a remote wilderness situation when professional first response/paramedic assistance is not easily available.
This Red Cross certification course offers hands-on interactive skills to provide extended care for injured people for up to 24 hours. The course includes topics of Standard First Aid with CPR C and AED plus adds outdoor and remote skills and techniques to improvise equipment dealing with injuries in the wilderness.

This is a 2-day, 1-day indoor class followed by a 1-day outdoor class – scenario-based learning in a rural setting. SOS First Aid can coordinate classes in Ontario.
100% attendance, skills demonstration, and minimum 75% passing grade on written exam.
A RFA/WRFA certification is valid for 3 years. This advanced form of first aid and CPR certification can be used as an equivalent to Standard First Aid with CPR C with AED for workplace requirements in Ontario.
Graduates of this Red Cross remote first aid training can continue to the Advanced Wilderness First Aid (to be renamed Wilderness First Aid) and Wilderness First Responder certifications.
We also offer RFA/WRFA recertification training.
