Wilderness First Responder

5-Day Format

The five-day WFR covers the same material and earns the same Wilderness Medical Associates certification as our standard 7 or 8 day course. It is designed for professionals who have less time for on-site training, but have the self-discipline to complete 25 hours of pre-course study. There are no other medical training prerequisites, but you should refer to the functional position description for emergency providers since certain physical requirements apply to be eligible for certification. Certification is valid for three years and include basic life support and CPR. The minimum age for participation is 18 at the time of course start. The maximum enrollment is 21 students.
