Wilderness First Responder (WFR)
The WFR course is the standard level of training for professional outdoor recreation industry field staff that work multi-day, overnight trips in remote environments. Most importantly, this training will prepare individuals to prevent many environmental illnesses and proactively manage pre-existing conditions in the field. Participants will also develop strong patient assessment skills, learn how to provide extended patient care in austere environments, and adopt treatment tools to stabilize life-threatening conditions. Students will develop the confidence to professionally call in a rescue in the event of a backcountry emergency and manage the evacuation of a medical or trauma patient.
We offer our WFR course in two different formats. The learning outcomes of both WFR curriculum delivery methods are the same.
