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 culminates with an overnight 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 from SOLO and an American Heart Association - Healthcare Provider CPR card valid for 2 years. This WFR course follows the curriculum set by SOLO, the oldest continuously operating wilderness medicine school in the world.
