Wilderness Medical Associates has been successfully running courses on a semi-regular basis since mid-June 2020. To date, we have not experienced any notable misadventures related to COVID-19. With colder weather in the Northern Hemisphere and dramatic upticks in COVID-19 cases, we want to again encourage mindfulness especially if you have signed up for an upcoming course.
We currently have two options for people pursuing recertification: take an in-person recertification course to recertify for 3 years, or complete an Online Course Extension and receive a 6-month certification. If you have completed an OCE course and are still unable to recertify in person, we now have OCE: Part 2 courses available as an option continue extending your current WMA certification.
If you decide not to participate in either option, and your certification expires, you will be required to attend a full course when conventional courses resume.
