Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
A. The price for Wilderness First Aid training has a huge range across providers, from $30 to $300, depending on if they are doing it as a service or as a job.
Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?
A. Many boy scout troop leaders have very little, if any, training or experience in first aid and emergencies. Helping them prepare for adventure is worth spending my time.
Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A. This year, I've presented Wilderness First Aid to nearly 170 people. These are mostly Boy Scout volunteers, but also a group of Engineers Without Borders preparing to help people in Honduras and Guatemala.
Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to
professionals about their project?
A. I've been scoutmaster of a troop for the past 6 years, taking them on adventures into the wilderness of New Mexico, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Wyoming, and Minnesota.
Having adult volunteers and scouts trained in first aid makes our outings safer and I am comfortable delegating responsibilities to others.
