Course Description:

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.

All Colorado Outside courses are running at reduced capacity and with additional accommodations in place.  Masks are required at all times indoors.  Students have their own table space in the classroom.  Hands on practice is done outside as much as possible.  Masks and eye protection are required while practicing skills.  Students are assigned first aid equipment, ground pads and CPR mannikins.  Instructors are vaccinated and receive regular testing.  Students are not required to be vaccinated, although recommended.  Additional information will be sent upon registration.
