If you are certified through another wilderness medical training provider, you may recertify a WFR certification achieved or recertified within the last three years and your original WFR course must have been at least 64 hours in length. WMA International grads can recertify their WAFA, Wilderness EMT, or WFR. All Wilderness Medical Associates International certifications are valid for three years.
This three-day option is available to any WFR student to recertify a Wilderness First Responder certification. WMA International Wilderness EMT graduates with a current EMT license may also recertify the wilderness portion of their WEMT with this course. This course teaches CPR to the equivalent of healthcare provider level.
