Hopefully you've found something to suit your Troop's needs. But,
there are a fewoptions available.
1) Contact your local American Red Cross agencies
2) Search the internet for "Wilderness First Aid" training -- there
are several 'for profit' groups that provide this training.
My troop contacted local ARC people and finally settled with a SOLO
(for profit) course about 3 hours away -- for a cost of $85/per
person. When one of the people taking the course heard the cost, he
contacted his local ARC (one that I had contacted w/ no response) and
managed to get a $60/person course in our own backyard (20 miles away).
Best of luck!
