Course Overview

Must be 18 to register

88 hr – 12 day Course

The NIM Medical WFR-A course is designed to replace and exceed the traditional “Wilderness First Responder” or “WFR” course by including expanded education in a broader “austere” environment.

The clinical focus of the course will include content and live scenarios specific to Outdoor Recreation, Expedition / Travel Medicine, Public Health and Humanitarian Emergencies, Austere Medevac, and Leadership Management.  This course is ideal for those seeking to be on ski patrols, wildland firefighters, humanitarian aid groups, or basic medical aid in semi-tactical environments.

  • This course is a stand-alone course and will provide a “WFR-A” certification that meets and exceeds a “WFR” certification.
  • This course does not include or meet the requirements of a TCCC or similar course
