Wilderness First Responder Description
The 80-hour Wilderness First Responder certification is considered the standard medical certification for guides, trip leaders, outdoor educators, and anyone working or playing in remote areas. RMI’s Wilderness First Responder emphasizes decision-making, hands-on skills, and the theoretical knowledge necessary to function in remote areas. This training also provides a strong foundation for students to progress on to more advanced levels of training.
Our curriculum is developed based on recommendations from the Wilderness Medical Society combined with the collective experience of our remote-area paramedics. CPR for the Healthcare Provider is included in the course. Please note that food and lodging are not provided for WFR courses.
This course will be held at:
