  • Refund policy

    • The course fee is refundable (1) if you did not request the book to be shipped in advance [in which case, course fee is not refundable in whole or part], AND (2) you cancel ten days or more in advance, AND (3) the instructor is able to find a replacement for your spot (dropping out affects the learning of other students when it comes to scenarios, an absence causes an odd number of students, making for incomplete scenario learning experiences). If you need to cancel fewer than ten days in advance, notification as soon as possible will be most appreciated; the instructor will try to work with you and find a replacement, however it likely will be too late.  If a charge card payment is refunded, $6 will be retained to cover the commission the charge card company ate.

 

5) Set your email spam filter to welcome emails from:  @solowfa (d0t) com 

Instructor Matt will email you (1) when your registration and payment have been processed and your spot is confirmed, and (2) about a week before class with some final notes.  If you aren't familiar with how to set your spam filter (even gmail enables setting it), please be sure to check your spam box if you don't see the aforementioned emails arrive.  Thanks.

 

6) Have time and want to do more pre-course preparatory reading? 

If you spent the extra $5 and ordered the dWFA textbook in advance, that's a fantastic start.  That book, used in the dtWFA course, has 100 pages.  In autumn 2014, the SOLO doctor released a brand new 330-page disaster / travel / wilderness medical textbook:  "WILDCARE," now used in the longer classes (8 to 9-day Wilderness First Responder and up).  Consider ordering it if you have time to read through it before class, and regardless as it will serve as an outstanding reference resource to you after class.  WILDCARE Info and Order Page  If you enrolled in the WFA course to recertify your WFR (or higher), consider getting this as well, for it blows away the old black & white WFR textbook and will be a fantastic resource for you.
