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.

Room and Board:


Held at an Island Lodge in Muscongus Bay, ME.  Parking is available for participants in Friendship Maine and all participants will be transported to the island lodge via boat on the start day of the course.  The boat ride is roughly 15 minutes in length and all personal belongings can be transported on the vessel.  Once on the island, participants will not have the opportunity to return to the mainland until the course closes on the final day.  Food and lodging are included in the course cost and accommodations can be made for dietary restrictions/food allergies. Rooms in the Lodge will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis and those not in the lodge will be provided a 12 x 12 tent platform located a short distance from the course site.  The island lodge is supported by off-grid systems and cell service is spotty on the island.  WIFI is not available at the Lodge.
