The Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute’s Outdoor Pursuits program is partnering with Wilderness Medical Associates (WMA) to host a three-day Wilderness First Responder (WFR) recertification course. This course is open to Northland College students, faculty, and staff, as well as to the public. Course fee includes all instruction and course materials for all three days. All course participants must be fully vaccinated (and boosted, if eligible) with one of the nationally accepted COVID-19 vaccines. The course meets in 169 Larson-Juhl Center for Science and the Environment.
This course is open to anyone who holds an unexpired WFR certification. Eligible certifications must have been earned from one of the following course types:
- A WFR course with a minimum of 72 hours of in-person instruction
- A 72-hour hybrid course with a minimum of 45 hours of in-person instruction
- A WFR Recertification course with a minimum of 16 hours of in-person instruction
WMA WEMS graduates with a current EMS license may also recertify the wilderness portion of their Wilderness EMS (WEMS) certification with this course. WEMS graduates from other organizations may not use this course to recertify their WEMS. If you are recertifying the wilderness portion of your WMA WEMS certification, you must notify the course provider of this information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
