Learn to respond to emergencies in remote settings.

This is a nationally recognized program that trains participants to respond to emergencies in remote settings. Essential for anyone who spends a significant amount of time in remote places, the Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course will prepare you to make difficult medical decisions.

Class Notes
    • We normally host this class once per year, usually in January between the fall and winter academic semesters. Our January 2015 class is finished and we don’t anticipate having this course again before early 2016. Check the nols.edu website under WMI (Wilderness Medicine Institite) for courses in your area should you wish to take this class before early 2016.
    • This is an 80-hour class. The class will meet each day from 8:00AM to 5:00PM and there will be two evening sessions and one full day off in the middle of the course. Further details of the class schedule (which days will have evening sessions, and the day off,) will be discussed by the instructor with the class on the first day.
