Description

Get Prepared.  The Wilderness First EMT Upgrade Course strikes the perfect  balance between time invested and  confidence  earned for anyone  treating  backcountry emergencies.

Wilderness accidents and emergencies happen all too often. Whether you are backpacking in a remote area, climbing at the crags or running in the foothills, being able to provide medical care in a remote environment is essential for any outdoor enthusiast, especially as a medical provider in the austere environment.

Our two full-day practical sessions are held in the mountains, where participants learn to perform skills and execute practice scenarios in true outdoor environments. This course content  focuses exclusively on wilderness relevant topics, with hands-on all day practical field sessions.

Already an EMT?

Students who have already taken an EMT course have two options. 1) Take the full WFR course to earn your EMT Upgrade. This will satisfy all requirements for national recertification and state relicensure, and you will get a comprehensive review of basic EMT skills, common emergency pathologies and essential treatments . 2) Take the Upgrade Only course. This course is only 16 hours of online content  focusing exclusively on wilderness relevant topics, plus 4, all-day practical field sessions. These are the identical field sessions that WFR Students will attend.
