Wilderness Medical Associates (WMA) Wilderness First Responder (WFR) training is a nationally recognized program that prepares participants to handle emergencies in remote settings. The 72 hour curriculum meets all the new DOT National Standards for First Responder with additional protocols for extended care situations. Curriculum topics include but are not limited to: wilderness protocols for delayed/prolonged transport, trauma management, patient assessment, wilderness rescue, and backcountry medicine. Emphasis is placed on prevention and decision making, not on memorization of lists.
Upon successful completion of practical and written exams you will receive WMA's Wilderness First Responder and Anaphylaxis Workshop certifications, valid for three years, plus American Heart Association CPR certification.
