If you're looking to become a Wilderness First Responder (WFR), look no further! The Outdoor Adventure Program will be hosting a 5-Day WFR course, taught by Wilderness Medical Associates, on January 6-10, 2020 here at Michigan Tech. This course is open to anyone and everyone! Class size is limited.

"Wilderness First Responder (WFR) is the definitive course in medical training for outdoor educators, guides, SAR team members, and others who work or play in remote areas. The curriculum is comprehensive and practical, including all of the essential principles and skills required to assess and manage medical problems in isolated and extreme environments. The 5-day format is for individuals and sponsors with less time available for on-site training and requires 25 hours of pre-course preparation. Students must register at least 2 weeks before the course date. All students must complete all pre-course work prior to arrival on course."

Course details are available at 5-day WFR.
