Posted on: December 22nd, 2023 by lena

A Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course is designed to provide you with the tools to take care of an injured person and to make critical medical and evacuation decisions in remote locations.

The skills learned on a WFR course are needed whether you are a climber, a sea kayak instructor, a mountaineer, a backpacker or a person who live far away from clinics and hospitals. Calling 911 (US) or 112 (Europe) is not always possible.

Lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios every day. Leadership, decision making and First Aid is all combined in an intense but very fun education.

We spend time outdoors regardless of weather conditions. Come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments.

The course is open to the public and we usually receive participants from all over Europe and the US. Some folks might have previous experience, most have not.

Participants are required to pass both written and practical examinations to obtain WFR and CPR certification. Successful course completion earns you a NOLS Wilderness Medicine Adult & Child CPR certification and a NOLS Wilderness Medicine Wilderness First Responder & Epinepherine certification.

The NOLS Wilderness Medicine 80-hour Wilderness First Responder course is international industry standard.
