SOLO WFRs have the additional option of recertifying through SOLO's Wilderness First Aid course.

HOW MUCH? $225 ($265 with CPR)

Register through Eventbrite to pay by credit card (extra Eventbrite fee applies).

WHAT IS TAUGHT? The SOLO Wilderness First Responder Refresher is an intensive two-day course covering the standard WFR curriculum as well as new wilderness protocols. It is fast-paced, with a mix of traditional classroom sessions and hands-on practical skill sessions and outdoor scenarios to help you maintain the confidence to make critical medical decisions in a wilderness setting.

WHAT IS INCLUDED? Cost of $225 includes engaging instruction, certification fee, and training manual. WFR certification is good for three years. (After three re-certification cycles, students are advised to again take a full WFR course, particularly if you are not active in the field.) Need CPR? We hold an optional CPR course at the end of Day One for an additional $40. (Your WFR is not valid without current CPR certification.)

WHAT SHOULD I BRING? WFR Refresher students are asked to bring clothing suitable for being active outside (i.e. rolling around on the ground pretending to be injured, and kneeling next to mock patients) for much of each day, in any kind of weather. They should also bring additional outdoor layers to use for warming and treating patients. Lodging and meals are not included. Here is a complete packing list.

We'll also ask you to email us a copy of your expiring WFR and most recent CPR cards. (Remember WFR is not valid without current CPR, so please either renew prior to the WFR Review, or register to take CPR with us at the end of Day One.)

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon!
