NOLS Wilderness Medicine Första-Hjälpenkurser

NOLS_WM_BADGE_wBKG copyCrossing Latitudes arrangerar NOLS Wilderness Medicine första-hjälpenkurser i Skandinavien, Europa och i USA. Fokus på NOLS sjukvårdskurser  ligger på hur vi tar hand om en skadad person tills hjälp kommer.

I dessa COVID-19 tider har vi ändrat vårt förhållningssätt lite. Att minimera smittspridning har alltid varit en del av NOLS Wilderness Medicine sjukvårdskurser. Vi har till exempel alltid skyddshandskar på oss i alla scenarier. Vi kommer att göra allt vi kan för att minimera smittspridning men risken kan inte elimineras 100%. Vi ber dig att hjälpa oss genom att följa våra rekommendationer.

Efter en kurs med oss får deltagare antingen ett svensk hjärt- och lungräddning kompetenskort eller NOLS CPR kort samt NOLS Wilderness Medicine internationella certifiering (2 år).

Om friluftsliv är ditt intresse då borde första-hjälpen också vara det! En olycka händer så lätt!

NOLS är en internationell organisation vars mål är att via expeditioner undervisa ledarskap, miljö och etik, expeditionsdynamik, riskanalys, sjukvård och tekniska färdigheter.  NOLS internationella högkvarter är i Lander, Wyoming, USA. NOLS finns i Alaska, Rocky Mountain, Pacific Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, Teton – alla områden i USA samt i Nya Zeeland, Östra Afrika, Indien, Mexiko, Chile, Kanada och av och till i Skandinavien. Vildmarken är vårt klassrum! Om du vill beställa en NOLS katalog så klicka här!

NOLS Wilderess Medicine är en internationell organisation som undervisar vildmarks sjukvård. NOLS har över 1000 kurser per år i mer än 40 olika länder. Efter kursen får man en internationell certifiering som kan betyda mycket för de som söker friluftsguidejobb. De flesta guide-företagen i friluftsländer såsom USA, Kanada, Nya Zealand, Brasilien eller Chile kräver att man har en Wilderness First Responder certifiering. Crossing Latitudes arrangerar flera 11-dagars WFR-kurser i Europa vart år.

Ingen tidigare erfarenhet krävs för att ta en NOLS Wilderness Medicine kurs. Det är våra instruktörers jobb att se till att du har kul medans du lär dig livsviktiga saker. Crossing Latitudes arrangerar ca 45 NOLS Wilderness Medicine första-hjälpenkurser varje år i Skandinavien och Europa. Vi har undervisat nästan 6000 personer i Europa. Runt om i världen har vi haft över 450,000 deltagare. Om kursen är på svenska så är givetvis kurs-materialet också på svenska. Om kursen är på finska så är givetvis kurs-materialet också på finska och likaså engelska så klart. Alla våra skandinaviska instruktörer har gått NOLS Wilderness Medicine instruktörsutbildning och vi undervisar runt om i hela världen.

Vi lovar att du kommer ha kul medans du lär dig oumbärliga kunskaper! Under kursen kommer du att vara både “patient” och “sjukvårdare”. Vi sätter upp realistiska scenarier med fejkat blod. 50% praktik och realistiska scenarier utomhus – i vilket väder vi än har under kursen. 50% är lektion, demonstration och diskussioner – oftast inomhus i ett klassrum. Under kursens gång så varvar vi lektioner och scenarier.

NOLS Wilderness Medicine kurser är för alla som gillar friluftsliv. På våra kurser har vi klättrare, scoutledare, paddlare, friluftsentusiaster, seglare, svamp plockare, militärer … alla med friluftsintresse. Våra svenska instruktörer har undervisat kurser för bl.a. Friluftsfrämjandet, Gränslösa Guider, Svenska Scoutförbundet, Friskis & Svettis Stockholm, Horizont Kajak, STF Saltoluokta, Göta Ingenjörsregemente, Svenska Kryssarklubben, RealGymnasiet, RyssbyGymnasiet, Älvdalens Fjäll- och Äventyrsledare, Storumans Fjälledarlinje, Klarälvdalens Folkhögskola, Grimslöfs Folkhögskola, Campus Are natur & turist, Sogndals Folkhögskola i Norge, The Castle Climbing Center i London, UK, American School in London, UK, Adventure Burren på Irland, University of Edinburgh, UK, Élményakadémia /Academy of Experience Hungary, Max Planck Institute i Tyskland samt för många av de olika US Airforce och Army baserna i England och Tyskland.

På NOLS Wilderness Medicine hemsida hittar du information om alla olika kurs-typer. NOLS Wilderness Medicine erbjuder också “Medical Expeditions” för folk som har en läkar-, sköterske- eller ambulansförarutbildning.  I Skandinavien och Europa undervisar vi  WFA’s, WAFA’s, WFR’s och WFR-R kurser. WEMT kurser undervisas bara i USA.

WFA = Wilderness First Aid 20-30 timmar. Undervisas på svenska, finska eller engelska.

WAFA = Wilderness Advanced First Aid 40-46 timmar+. Undervisas på svenska eller engelska.

WFR = Wilderness First Responder 80 timmar+. Undervisas bara på engelska.

WFR-R = Wilderness First Responder Recertification 24 timmar+. Undervisas bara på engelska.

WEMT = Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician 200 timmar. Undervisas bara på engelska och i USA.

Vi har flera Skandinavier och Europeer som undervisar för NOLS Wilderness Medicine. Lena Conlan (ägare av Crossing Latitudes ), Roope Roine, Malin Thomasson, Elias Sjöberg, Fred Södergran, Eva Söderström, Xuan Ming Ng, och Stephan Grabner. Om du vill veta mer om oss instruktörer så klicka här: NOLS Wilderness Medicine instruktörer

De flesta Wilderness First Aid (WFA) kurserna är 2,5 till 3 dagar och undervisas på svenska, finska eller engelska. Kursmatrialet är det samma vare sig kursen är 20 timmar eller 30 timmar. Skillnaden är att på de längre kurserna har vi mer tid för frågor, diskussioner om ledarskap och gruppdynamik, längre scenarier samt kanske en nattövning. Ingen tidigare erfarenhet krävs. Om du har en Wilderness First Responder certifiering från NOLS Wilderness Medicine så kan du ta en WFA kurs som återcertifiering.

Första Hjälpenutrustning

En Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA) kurs ligger på 40 timmar+. Denna kurstyp är lite ovanlig då de flesta NOLS Wilderness Medicine kurser i Europa är antingen Wilderness First Aid kurser (WFA) på 20-30 timmar eller Wilderness First Responder kurser (WFR) på 80 timmar. Hjärt- och lungräddning är och ett nattscenarie är inkluderade i en WAFA kurs. För att få en Wilderness Advanced First Aid certifiering krävs att du klarar både ett skriftligt och ett praktiskt prov.  En deltagare som inte klarar proven får istället för en WAFA certifiering en Wilderness First Aid (WFA) certifiering.

En Wilderness First Responder (WFR) kurs är 80 timmar+ lång. En WFR är öppen för alla som är intresserade av en fördjupning i vildmarksmedicin. Alla NOLS Wilderness Medicine Wilderness First Responder kurser undervisas på engelska men i Europa är oftast en av instruktörerna svensk och kan hjälpa till med översättningar om så behövs. Man måste inte ha varit med på en WFA eller WAFA kurs innan man tar en WFR-kurs.  På en WFR kurs så bor och äter vi ofta tillsammans. Vi har deltagare från hela världen så förvänta dig intressanta diskussioner. På en WFR kurs har vi också större scenarier och även en natt scenarie. Ofta bjuder vi in folk utifrån som hjälper oss att vara “patienter”. Vi strävar efter att det ska bli så realistiskt som möjligt för dig som deltagare. NOLS Wilderness First Responder kursmaterial är internationellt erkänt och ofta ett krav för guider och intstruktörer i andra länder. Kursboken skickas ut när man betalar in kursavgiften.

Återcertifiering av en Wilderness First Responder (WFR-Recertification) eller en Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA) En WAFA och en WFR certifiering är giltlig i 2 år. Under dessa 2 år kan du kalla dig WAFA eller WFR. Om dina 2 år har gått ut dvs. du har passerat utgångsdatumet på ditt certifikat så kan du inte kalla dig WAFA/WFR längre. Du har dock ytterligare ett år på dig att återcertifiera. Om du inte återcertifierar inom detta “extra” år efter utgångsdatumet så förlorar du din WAFA/WFR status.

Bästa sättet att återcertifiera är att ta en WFR-Recertification kurs (24 timmar+). Om du har en WFR certifiering från NOLS Wilderness Medicine så kan du även återcertifiera genom att ta en kort Wilderness First Aid (WFA) kurs (2-3 dagars kurs på svenska, finska eller engelska). Vi rekommenderar dock en WFR-R eftersom alla deltagare har en WFR och kursen är scenarie baserad. Man måste alltid ta ett skriftligt och ett praktiskt prov när man återcertifierar sin WFR eller WAFA.

Om du har en WAFA eller WFR certifiering från ett annat företag än NOLS Wilderness Medicine och vill återcertifiera med oss (WMA, SOLO, Remote Medical, Aerie, Desert Medical, WEMSIE eller annat företag) måste du ta en WFR-R kurs. Om du klarar det skriftliga och praktiska provet får du efteråt en NOLS Wilderness Medicine WAFA/WFR certifiering.

    A Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course is designed to provide you with the tools to take care of an injured person and to make critical medical and evacuation decisions in remote locations.

    The skills learned on a WFR course are needed whether you are a climber, a sea kayak instructor, a mountaineer, a backpacker or a person who live far away from clinics and hospitals. Calling 911 (US) or 112 (Europe) is not always possible.

    The WFR certification is highly recommended for members of ATTA, Swedish Mountain Guides and may other organizations in Europe.

    Lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning.

    Learning takes place both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather conditions. Come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments.

    The course is open to the public and we usually receive participants from all over Europe and the US.

    Participants are required to pass both written and practical examinations to obtain WFR and CPR certification. Successful course completion earns you a NOLS Wilderness Medicine Adult & Child CPR certification and a NOLS Wilderness Medicine Wilderness First Responder  & Epinepherine certification.

    The NOLS Wilderness Medicine 80-hour Wilderness First Responder course is international industry standard.

This letter of completion may allow you to recertify with your original certifying organization. You must contact that organization prior to your NOLS Wilderness Medicine course to ensure that our course will meet their requirements for recertification.

    It is your responsibility to make sure your certification meets this standard. If you are unsure, please contact NOLS Wilderness Medicine before enrolling in a course and review the recertification portion of our website: https://www.nols.edu/en/courses/courses/wilderness-first-responder-recertification-WFRR/.

    The WFR course is designed to provide you with the tools to take care of an injured person and to make critical medical and evacuation decisions in remote locations.

    The skills learned on a WFR course are needed whether you are a climber, a sea kayak instructor, a mountaineer, a backpacker or a person who live far away from clinics and hospitals. Calling 911 (US) or 112 (Europe) is not always possible.

    Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning.

    Half of your time will be spent completing practical skills, case studies and scenarios designed to challenge your decision making abilities. Learning takes place both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather conditions. Come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments.

    This WFR course is held at Kamp Koren, Kobarid, Slovenia. https://www.campingslovenia.com/

    We highly recommend that you book your lodging (tent site, caravan, an Eco chalet or glamping) at Kamp Koren – situated by the Soca River only 500 meters from the town of Kobarid. When you book your lodging at Kamp Koren mention that you are taking the NOLS Wilderness Medicine course. Phone: +386 (0)5 389 13 11 Email: info@kamp-koren.si

    Participants are required to pass both written and practical examinations to obtain WFR and CPR certification. Successful course completion earns you a NOLS Wilderness Medicine Adult & Child CPR certification and a NOLS Wilderness Medicine Wilderness First Responder international certification.

    The NOLS Wilderness Medicine 80-hour Wilderness First Responder course is international industry standard.
