Wilderness First Responder (WFR) on the SAN JUAN RIVER
March 16 - March 24, March 20 - March 22
Course meets from 8 AM-5 PM when not on the river.
This course embraces the “wilderness” of WFR, by providing three days of instruction and hands-on scenarios on the San Juan River. WFR has long been recognized as the standard in wilderness medical training for guides, trip leaders and outdoor professionals. This 80-hour WFR course provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to respond to backcountry medical and trauma situations. Students will learn patient stabilization, treatment, and evacuation with special attention to extended patient care. The class will meet four days on the NAU campus, then spend three days paddling the San Juan River, then return to campus for two days for wrap-up. The course will contain a mock scenario that gives students practical, hands-on experience. Upon successful completion of the course students will receive a WFR completion card valid for 3 years and an American Heart Association - Healthcare Provider CPR card valid for 2 years. Our curriculum meets the Wilderness Medical Society’s recommended minimum course topics for WFR.
