Wilderness First Responder (Hybrid)

Get the skills that could save a life.

 

This course will give you the tools to make critical medical decisions and evacuation plans in places where definitive care is delayed and/or you have unreliable communication. That could be miles in from a trailhead or that could be in the middle of Wyoming with no cell service.

 

Taught by internationally recognized Wilderness Medicine Training Center (WMTC), certification as a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) is the gold standard in the outdoor industry and is becoming a prerequisite for employment with outdoor adventure programs. If you are a wilderness professional, missionary, youth pastor, or an employee that works in remote areas, this course is for you. This 80 hour course could be one of the best decisions you make. And, who knows, it could save a life one day.

Questions About Covid-19

What if SROM has to cancel the course?

You will receive a full refund if we need to cancel the course.

Should I get travel insurance?
