Wilderness First Responder Recertification Course

Wilderness First Responder Recertification Course (WRC)

The 24-hour training refreshes a current WFR or WAFA with new updates in wilderness medicine assessments and treatments based on best practices and new research, as well as updated industry standard protocols. This course favors hands-on scenarios and simulations, reviewing recent wilderness medicine case studies, and skills.

All of our courses prioritize hands-on scenarios, simulations, and skill stations taking place in various outdoor conditions. Each student will have minimum of 40+ hands-on scenarios throughout the course. In addition, course participants will have the opportunity to create their own complex scenario and subsequently grade and evaluate their peers.
