Wilderness First Responder Certification – WFR

The Wilderness First Responder Certification is the ideal medical training program for leaders in remote areas. These leaders include outdoor educators, guides, military, professional search and rescue teams, researchers, and those involved in disaster relief. The curriculum is comprehensive and practical. It includes the essential principles and skills required to assess and manage medical problems in isolated and extreme environments for days and weeks if necessary.

We are proud to partner with Wilderness Medical Associates (WMA), offering their curriculum and certification for our medical courses. This leader in wilderness and rescue medicine is dedicated to the development of remote and practical medicine around the globe.
