Wilderness First Responder Re-certification (WRC) – 24 hours

Wilderness First Responder Recertification CourseThis course may be used to refresh a Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA), Wilderness First Responder (WFR) or Wilderness EMT (wilderness section only) certifications. The 3-day course is heavily scenario based and will provide a review and update of wilderness medicine treatment practices, protocols and evacuation guidelines. On day one we will jump right into scenarios and move through the course curriculum at a fast pace. While we cannot cover the entire course in only three days you are responsible for the entire curriculum. To better prepare you for success we provide you with a study guide that must be completed and handed into your instructors the morning of the first day of class. American Heart Association
