This course requires 30+ hours of self-directed pre-course review prior to 40+ hours of in-person learning over the course of five days. The 5-Day WFR is best suited for students with previous medical backgrounds (EMR or higher) or those who have completed a WFR course in the past. Students are provided an electronic or physical textbook and downloadable study guide to review the curriculum and are expected to come to class ready to engage in drills and skill practice. Students must register at least four to two weeks before the in-person course date to receive the textbook and download the PDF study guide and adequately complete the pre-course review. Students are encouraged to register and begin pre-course review in advance of the required deadlines. 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.
