Wilderness First Responder (WFR)
RMI’s WFR course is a ten-day training focused on the techniques and decision-making skills needed to provide medical care when evacuation is hours or days away. Through a combination of hands-on training and theoretical knowledge, WFRs practice with the latest medical equipment while also learning to improvise with limited supplies as is often experienced in remote environments.
The WFR course typically runs from 8am-5pm for ten consecutive days with two evening scenarios and a one-day break. This course is non-residential; students are responsible for lodging and food.
Real World Application
This course is designed for individuals who have a high likelihood of using their training in the field. WFR certification is considered the standard for professionals working as guides, trip leaders, outdoor educators, and personnel working in remote areas.
