Training Description

The 5-day practical session of this distance learning course is held on the UNL campus.

 

WFR is for...
Outdoor professionals, those who take multi-day or longer personal trips, those who take part in high risk activities (rock climbing, whitewater paddling, mountaineering, multi-week expeditions of all kinds, etc.), or those who simply want to know more about wilderness medicine. Certification as a Wilderness First Responder is the industry standard for outdoor instructors and guides. We recommend taking the full course every six years.

WFR Description
Our standard WFR course is 9-days long; the practical session of our hybrid WFR is only 5-days but requires pre-course study and successful completion of three online exams in order to attend. Adult & Child CPR/AED certification is included. If you are interested in a hybrid WFR please visit the WFR website's homepage for course details and read the blog article Is a Hybrid Course in Wilderness Medicine Right for You? before registering and paying for the course.

Details

WEMT is for...
Experienced medical practitioners who are acting as an expedition medic or trip leader; the course is only offered as a hybrid course. Participants must hold a current NREMT certification or state EMT license (basic, intermediate, or paramedic) with patient care experience to receive certification as a WEMT. Similar to a Wilderness First Responder, the Wilderness EMT course focuses on assessment and treatment of traumatic, environmental, and medical emergencies in a wilderness environment. Labs teach field assessment and treatment skills. Lecture during the practical session is brief and focused on answering questions raised during simulations and case study reviews. While the focus remains on expedition medicine, the skills taught during our WEMT course may be applied directly to situations where prolonged EMS transport is unavoidable e.g.: disaster relief, SAR, rural EMS calls, etc.

WEMT Description
