Essential for anyone who spends significant time in remote places or who has a professional career in the outdoors, the Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course prepares you to make difficult medical decisions. This course is fast-paced and engaging. You'll spend half your time outside of the classroom practicing hands-on skills in realistic scenarios. In addition to scenarios, you'll participate in a full-scale night mock rescue.
WMI's curriculum encompasses a wide range of topics, including long-term patient care, wound management, straightening angulated fractures, reducing dislocations, litter packaging, and administering medications. You'll complete this course with the tools and confidence to manage patients in the backcountry for multiple days.
The intensive 80-hour curriculum is nationally recognized and supported by the Wilderness Medicine Institute's Medical Advisory Panel. You'll be taught by dynamic educators who practice both wilderness and urban medicine. This 10-day course is ideal for all professionals operating in remote environments. Adult/child CPR and FBAO certification is included. The WFR course is pre-approved for 70 hours of EMT CEU’s by CECBEMS.
