Are your wilderness medicine protocols on the tip of your tongue or in the bottom of your pack? Join the leader in wilderness medicine for a three-day scenario-based course to review and practice evacuation and decision making guidelines. Our dynamic, experienced instructors will refresh you on the current techniques, protocols and controversies in the wilderness medicine field. You'll have opportunities to ask questions based on your real life experiences and practice scenarios and case studies that will challenge you. The WFR Recertification course also includes Adult/child CPR and FBAO. This course is the most popular recertification program in Wilderness Medicine and is ideal for current Wilderness First Responders and Wildereness EMTs. The WFR Recertification course is pre-approved for 18 hours of EMT CEU’s by CECBEMS.
If you hold a current Wilderness First Responder certification of at least 70 hours, you will receive a WMI WFR certification upon successful completion of your WFR Recert course. If you hold a valid WFR certification from WMI, we ask you to bring your certification card so that the instructor can verify your expiration date. Students holding a current WFR certification from any other organization are REQUIRED to submit a photocopy of their certification card on the first day of the course. If you hold a current WFR certification from any other wilderness medicine organization with less than a 70 hour certification, you will receive a letter of course completion in lieu of a WMI WFR certification. This letter of completion may allow you to recertify with your original certifying organization. You must contact that organization prior to your WMI course to ensure that our course will meet their requirements for recertification.
All students are required to submit a photocopy of their WFR certification card on the first day of the course.
There is a one-year grace period for recertification of WMI cards. (Keep in mind that your certification is not current during this grace period and therefore you can not work as a Wilderness First Responder.)
Tuition payment in full is required to reserve your spot in the course. Tuition is non-transferable. Tuition is payable by check (with driver’s license number), Visa/MasterCard via Paypal or cash. Once the course has begun, no refunds of any moneys will be awarded. The tuition fee covers textbooks, syllabus, equipment and certification cards. WMI is not obligated to allow any student to attend a course until all WMI paperwork has been received, reviewed and approved by WMI. A full refund will be given if we are forced to cancel the course for any reason.
