This training is a skills check for on-line CPR and on-line WFA training available through the Emergency Care and Training Institute (ECSI). After registering here, you must purchase and complete the on-line classes at ECSI using the links below. That payment is separate and made directly to ECSI. You must bring the on-line course completion certificates with you to Latimer for both CPR and WFA. The online courses take 8-12 hours to complete and must be finished before arriving at Latimer.
The cost of the skills check is $90.00 per person. The $90.00 fee includes supplemental materials, food and lodging in climate-controlled cabins. You will need to bring linens for a twin bed or sleeping bag, pillow, towel/wash cloth, toiletries, clothing (check the weather, it can be tricky this time of year on the plateau), and pen/paper. In addition, you will also be required to bring your pack with personal gear for a 3-night trip into the back country, without food. You will be improvising first aid materials and will utilize what you bring with you.
Everyone attending this training will be required to submit a BSA medical form upon arrival at camp.
