The Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course is designed to provide you with the tools to make critical medical and evacuation decisions in remote locations. Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning.
Learning takes place both in our covered classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather conditions. Come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments. However, the weather in this area is typically spectacular in early September. (80's and sunny)
Prerequisites: No previous first aid training is required. You must be 16 years old to attend this course.
Certification: Participants are required to pass both written and practical examinations to obtain WFR and CPR certification.

All certifications are current for two years.
