IslandWood and the nationally recognized National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) will present Widlerness First Responder Course (WFR) on December 27th, 2018 - January 5, 2019. The WFR course is a nationally recognized 80-hour program that trains participants to respond to emergencies in remote settings. Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning.
The Wilderness First Responder course is essential if you work or recreate in the outdoors or in other austere environments where access to medical care is delayed or communication is unreliable.
Upon successful course completion, you will earn the following NOLS Wilderness Medicine certifications: Wilderness First Responder, Adult and Child CPR & Airway Management, and Epinephrine Auto-injector.
