Essential for anyone who spends a significant amount of time in remote places, the Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course will prepare you to make difficult medical decisions. During this fast-paced, engaging course, you will spend half your time outside of the classroom in realistic scenarios, including a full-scale night mock rescue. The nationally recognized NOLS Wilderness Medicine Institute (WMI) curriculum encompasses a wide range of topics including long-term patient care, wound management, straightening angulated fractures, reducing dislocations, litter packaging, and administering medications.
The rigorous 80-hour curriculum is delivered by dynamic educators who have practiced medicine in both wilderness and urban environments. You will leave this course with the tools and confidence to manage patients in the backcountry for multiple days. This 10-day course is ideal for all professionals operating in remote environments. WMI Adult and Child CPR & Airway Management certification is included.
A deposit of $300.00 is required to reserve a space in the course. Tuition balance is due the first day of the course and is payable by check (with driver’s license number), Visa/MasterCard* or cash. The tuition fee covers textbooks, syllabus, equipment and certifications. WMI is not obligated to allow any student to attend a course until all WMI paperwork has been received, reviewed and approved by WMI. A full refund will be given if we need to cancel the course for any reason.
