Description

Are you a professional or leader that works in an outdoor or low-resource environment?  Are you more than two hours away from definitive medical care?  If so, the Wilderness First Responder (WFR) Course is for you!

The Wilderness First Responder Course is medical training for anyone that works in remote areas (which includes Search and Rescue teams, Military, Disaster Relief Personnel, Outdoor Educators, Guides, Trip Leaders, and anyone that wants to be able to manage medical emergencies in an austere environment). While the course is focused around the practical application of skills, students will be introduced to detailed background knowledge and medical terminology.

The knowledge gained from this class will impart the student with the basic skills and background knowledge to be able to assess and manage medical issues in the backcountry (and many other limited resource environments).
