Are your wilderness medicine protocols on the tip of your tongue or in the bottom of your pack? This three day scenario-based course is designed as review and practice of evacuation and decision making guidelines. It also provides wilderness medicine practitioners with current updates in the wilderness medicine field.
This course may be used to recertify Wilderness First Responder and Wilderness EMT (wilderness portion only) certifications. You must possess a valid WFR certification of at least 72 hours in order to recertify through this course. Upon successful course completion you will earn a wilderness medicine certification from WMI of NOLS. This course may also be used to recertify WAFA certifications.
There will be a written examination at the beginning of this course. The WFR Recertification Course is pre-approved for 18 hours of EMT Continuing Education Hours (CEH) by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS).
These medical emergency training courses are designed for individuals who enjoy spending time in the outdoors. Students will learn treatment principles and decision-making skills through lectures, simulations, and additional hands on experience that are beneficial when handling a medical situation in the backcountry. All courses are instructed by staff from the Wilderness Medical Institute of NOLS.
