Wilderness First Responder & Wilderness EMT Recertification (Hybrid) @ Seattle, WA
WFR & WEMT Recertification
Our WFR & WEMT graduates are encouraged to attend on a yearly basis to maintain and polish their skills. Prior to your course you should thoroughly review your original course materials; there is NOT enough time in a Recertification course to cover all the material presented in your original course...yet you are still responsible for knowing it. If you wish a more complete review of the WFR or WEMT curriculum, consider taking our DLP WFR or WEMT course. The course includes Adult & Child CPR /AED certification. WMTC certifications remain valid for a maximum of three years with no grace period: Check the expiration date on your card.
Graduates from approved wilderness medicine schools may recertify with us by successfully completing a Recertification course or by completing a Wilderness First Aid course and passing our online WFR & WEMT Recertification test if they are currently certified OR in their grace period.
