Wilderness First Responder (WFR)
The Wilderness First Responder course provides comprehensive instruction in backcountry medicine. This course is the industry standard for professional outdoor guides, ski patrol, and trip leaders, or for individuals who want a high level of wilderness medical training for extended personal backcountry trips or expeditions. Offered on-site at Mink Lake Wilderness Camp, Our WFR course is facilitated by Stonehearth Open Learning Opportunities (SOLO), a world leader in Wilderness Medicine.
Students will gain extensive, hands-on instruction from certified SOLO educators on topics such as Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies and Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies. Course includes both a comprehensive written exam and comprehensive practical skill assessment. WFR certifications are valid for three years.
Also available is a four-day Advanced Wilderness First Aid (AWFA) course. AWFA certifications are valid for 2 years. For current SOLO-certified WFRs, this AWFA course can act as a recertification of your WFR.
