WFR Instructor Training Course (WFR-ITC)

The WFR-ITC is designed to familiarize qualified candidates with Desert Mountain Medicine’s (DMM) teaching philosophy, teaching techniques, and class management style. Instructor candidates will also cover the WFR industry standard “Scope of Practice” (SOP) and the DMM course curriculum, developed from the SOP.

After successful completion of the WFR-ITC (40 hours) and shadowing a Lead Instructor (LI) during a scheduled WFR course (80 hours), new instructors will be eligible to start teaching as part of an instructor team as an Assistant Instructor (AI).

DMM offers competitive compensation, continuing education, and the opportunity to be part of a team of highly qualified instructors in the field of outdoor education and wilderness medicine.
