Y.E.T.I. works hard with its staff and volunteers to ensure they have the training experience and practice to manage the inherent risk of outdoor activities. This includes training in Wilderness first aid. Thanks to Our Community Partners the YMCA Camp Terry and CPR Seattle we were able to offer this course to several of our volunteer guides so they can be ready anything were to happen on our trips. This course consist of a 16 hours of Hands-On practice to prepares students to administer first aid in remote areas. You can learn more about CPR Seattle courses here. We will continue to work with CPR Seattle to offer more of these training for our volunteers and other youth serving organization in King County.
