The Emergency Care & Safety Institute (ECSI) is pleased to announce the availability of the new BSA Wilderness First Aid Awareness course! This new course meets the Wilderness First Aid Curriculum of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and ECSI is proud to be recognized by the BSA as an approved CPR/AED and Wilderness First Aid training provider.

As many individuals are unable to access in-person Wilderness First Aid training during the COVID-19 pandemic, this new awareness-level online course will allow scouts, scout leaders, and staff to learn the cognitive information needed to respond to injuries or sudden illnesses when medical care is more than an hour away. Through the online course platform, individuals will be able to prepare for their upcoming camps in the comfort and safety of their own homes. Upon completion of the course, instructions will be provided to secure their course completion certificate.* Individuals will then be able to complete a physical skills check on-site as needed to ensure comprehension of the material.

Learn more about the online/blended course format here.

Physical copies of the Wilderness First Aid Field Guide are also available to purchase from your local Scout Shop or on the ECSI website.


*The component required in order for you to receive the Wilderness First Aid Course Completion Card for the BSA/WFA course. (This information is also outlined following your successful completion of the online BSA Wilderness First Aid Awareness course.)
  1. Take the certificate to your approved ECSI Education Center/Instructor and work with them to complete the 8-hour skills course with an approved ECSI instructor that covers the BSA scenarios and physical skills check-off as determined by your instructor.
Once the component listed above is completed you will receive your ECSI BSA/WFA Course Completion Card from your ECSI approved instructor. The course completion card is good for 2 years.
