Full reimbursement for Wilderness First Aid

now available to DV Chapter leaders

The DV Chapter is beginning the third year of an exciting new  pilot program for reimbursing chapter activity leaders who take the Wilderness First Aid course.

Any leader who leads trips within the 18-month period starting six months before, and up to one year following, the successful completion of the WFA course will be reimbursed: 50 percent of course fees for leading two trips, 75 percent for leading four, and 100 percent for leading six. Maximum reimbursement is $300. Two day or longer trips will count as two trips.

Course fees refers to registration and relevant lodging costs (for example, a two-day WFA training course by SOLO at Mohican Outdoor Center), and excludes travel and meal expenses unless such expenses are included in the registration fee.

Reimbursement allowances apply for all original, renewal and recertification classes. Limited funds available for this program.
