Wilderness First Responder (WFR)

Wilderness Medical Associates-international-logo

The Wilderness First Responder program provides great medical training for leaders in remote areas including outdoor educators, guides, military, professional search and rescue teams, researchers, and those involved in disaster relief. The curriculum is comprehensive and practical. It includes the essential principles and skills required to assess and manage medical problems in isolated and extreme environments for days and weeks if necessary.

Wilderness based training modality and mindset. The programs are typically 80 hour training standards and some of the programs’ curricula are based on trip preparation and improvisation. They do not meet the standards set by WSBC for use in the workplace.  They do not provide all of the necessary skills for non-urban or urban work. That said they are good programs for those that work exclusively in the back country.  It includes CPR in the curricula and epinephrine training. There are a variety of different protocols that are approved and provided by a wide range of international medical doctors that are different from the the OFA, NUEC 3 & NUOFA 3 first aid courses.
