Wilderness First Responder has become the gold-standard in medical training for outdoor educators, guides, and other backcountry professionals. The curriculum is comprehensive but practical, including all of the essential principles and skills required to assess and manage medical problems in remote and extreme environments. Wilderness First Responder is the best basic medical training for people who like to work or play off the beaten path. The curriculum makes liberal use of practical hands-on sessions as well as classroom lecture and discussion. You should expect realistic scenarios using stage blood and simulated wounds to properly prepare you for backcountry emergencies. Sessions may be video-taped to enhance learning.

WFR Open Recertification: March 6-March 8, 2010. Cost: $400
This three day (24 hour) course is a recertification course open to graduates of ALL wilderness medical training courses of 64 hours or longer with a current certification. Upon successful completion of this course you will receive Wilderness Medical Associates WFR, Anaphylaxis and BLS-level CPR certifications. WMA WEMT graduates with a current EMT-B or Paramedic certificate may also recertify the wilderness portion of their WEMT.
