Wilderness First Responder Re-Certification + CPR/AED (18 Hours)

April 18 @ 8:00 am - April 19 @ 5:00 pm

$250

This course is open to anyone with a current Wilderness First Responder certification and backed by SOLO, the longest running school of wilderness medicine in the world!

Refresh your memory with our Wilderness First Responder (WFR) Recertification course. This intensive two-day course covers the standard WFR curriculum as well as new wilderness protocols. This course is designed for students whose current WFR certification is due to expire. The WFR Recertification is fast-paced, incorporating a traditional classroom session with hands-on practical skills scenarios to help you maintain the confidence to make critical medical decisions in a wilderness setting.

Wilderness First Responder is a three-year certification. Students are advised to re-take the full WFR course after three re-certifications. This course includes CPR/AED. A current CPR certification is required to keep your WFR valid.
