Dates: 8/24/2022 - 8/28/2022

Course Description:

Tucked away at the base of 10,909-ft Carson Peak, June Lake is a charming mountain hideaway in the spectacular Eastern Sierra region of California. The class will be held at the June Lake Community Center. With nearby access to climbing and camping galore, it’s an outdoors paradise and the perfect place to learn and practice your skills.

Wilderness First Responder (WFR) is the definitive course in medical training for outdoor educators, guides, SAR team members, and others who work or play in remote areas. The curriculum is comprehensive and practical, including all of the essential principles and skills required to assess and manage medical problems in isolated and extreme environments. The 5-day format is for individuals and sponsors with less time available for on-site training and requires 25 hours of pre-course preparation.

Students must register at least 2 weeks before the course date. All students must complete all pre-course work prior to arrival on course.

Prior to enrolling in a course, please review our Functional Position Description. The criteria set forth in this document allows students to self-assess their ability to meet the demands of both a WMAI course as well as the demands of a certified wilderness medical provider in the field.

Gut-Z Journey takes the safety of students very seriously. Facial masks and gloves will be worn during hands on drills in class. When possible, courses will be conducted 100% outdoors. Certain courses may require vaccinations when there are long periods indoors times (during winter months). You can learn more about specific course protocols at
