Wilderness First Responder
Outdoor professionals, those who take multi-day or longer personal trips, those who take part in high risk activities (rock climbing, whitewater paddling, mountaineering, multi-week expeditions of all kinds, etc.), or those who simply want to know more about wilderness medicine. Certification as a Wilderness First Responder is the industry standard for outdoor instructors and guides. We recommend taking the full course every six years.
Our standard WFR course is 9-days long; the practical session of our hybrid WFR is only 5-days but requires pre-course study and successful completion of three online exams in order to attend. Adult & Child CPR/AED certification is included. If you are interested in a hybrid WFR please visit the hybrid WFR website's homepage for course details and read the blog article Is a Hybrid Course in Wilderness Medicine Right for You? before registering and paying for the course.
