Course Description


Summary:

The Open Recertification course is open to graduates of any wilderness-based first aid training course that was at least 64 hours long and completed within 3 years of the proposed recertification option. Successful graduates of this course will receive Wilderness Medical Associates’ Wilderness First Responder, Anaphylaxis, and BLS/Healthcare Provider-level CPR certifications. WMA WEMT graduates with a current EMT-B or Paramedic certificate may also recertify the wilderness portion of their WEMT with this course.

**If you are using this course to recertify a WMA WEMT if is your responsibility to let the sponsor know when registering, and to inform the instructor on the first day of class.**

Lodging includes rustic bunk-style cabins. Most cabins include multiple bunks, none have indoor toilets, most do not have electricity, and some are heated by wood stoves. A centrally-located washhouse is available with showers and toilets and toilets are available in the main course building. A base map will be issued upon check-in. We accommodate dietary needs and provide single-gender lodging.
