Wilderness First Responder Recertification with WMI of NOLS

March 15 - 17

This three-day scenario-based course is designed as a review and practice of evacuation and decision making guidelines. It also provides wilderness medicine practitioners with current updates in the wilderness medicine field. It may be used to recertify current Wilderness First Responder and Wilderness EMT (wilderness portion only) certifications from the following organizations: WMI, NOLS, SOLO, and WMA. CPR is included. There will be a written examination at the beginning of this course. While you can also recertify by taking the two-day WFA (see below), this course is more extensive and is designed for those with previous wilderness medicine training.
