April 17 & 18 – Advanced Wilderness First Aid Recertification

Free for active trip leaders!

AWFA must be recertified every 3 years. ACC-Ottawa is sponsoring a recertification weekend open to all who have their AWFA certification and need to recertify. The course is two days and will run from 8:00am – 4:00pm at St. Pius X High School, 1481 Fisher Avenue. If you are an active trip leader the Section will cover the complete cost of your recertification (an active trip leader has led a trip in the past year or has one planned by the end of this coming summer). If you have your AWFA but are not a leader and are an active (participating) Section member you will receive a 50% subsidy. (Your cost will be $90.) AWFA is recommended, although not mandatory, for trip leaders. Keep yours current!
