Event Name:
Wilderness First Responder Course @ Costa Rica

Event Type(s):
Risk Management


The Wilderness First Responder (WFR) training is the single most important certification to have to work in the outdoor industry. Nearly every employer ranging from river rafting companies to outdoor education organizations require their staff to be certified WFR’s. The skills you learn as a WFR are very practical can be applied anywhere at anytime.

Hosted in the tropical rainforests of Costa Rica - we deliver this course in a 7-day intensive format and pack a lot of information in a short amount of time. Be prepared to spend 10 hours a day in the classroom, and then have 2-3 hours of reading and homework assigned to you each night. Be ready to get muddy and sweaty as you learn to carry a patient on a litter up and down the steep footpaths of our rainforest base. You can sign up to this as part of our Outdoor Leader Semester program.
