Basic First Aid and CPR with a Wilderness Focus

Oregon Trails Coalition is pleased to be partnering with U.S. Forest Service Region 6, Bureau of Land Management OR-WA Office, Clackamas Community College, and other partners to make available a specialized first aid and CPR certification program for staff and volunteers performing trails stewardship activities on our public lands. 


This Basic First Aid and CPR Certification with a Wilderness Focus offered through Clackamas Community College has two required parts:

  1. An online, self-paced learning module (4-6 hours) to be completed in advance of the onsite skills assessment.

  2. An in-person skills verifcation (6-8 hours).

By registering for this program through one of the links below, you will receive the following at least two weeks before the scheduled skills verification: a participation waiver, information on how to access the online training portal, and information about what bring and what to expect at the in-person training.


The online learning module must be completed in advance of the in-person skills verificaiton.


Skills verification will be offered outdoors in groups of up to 5 participants per instructor. Skills verification will require participants to interact with others in their small group as practice patients and aid providers with COVID precautions in place. 


Successful completion of the program will result in a 1st Aid/CPR card valid for 2 years.


CCC uses the Health and Safety Institutes (HSI) Medic First Aid curriculum.

The trainings offered here are meant for trail stewardship staff and volunteers serving as crew leaders and/or pursuing sawyer certification for trail work conducted on public lands.
