Aerie’s 72 hour Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course is designed for outdoor professionals and outdoor enthusiasts, preparing them to care for injuries and illness in remote, challenging environments. The course is fast-paced, challenging, hands-on and fun.
Aerie’s nationally recognized Wilderness First Responder (WFR) courses address injury and illness prevention, patient assessment, long-term patient management, improvised splint and litter construction, and environmental emergencies while stressing the thought processes unique to caring for patients in remote environments. Our instructors are professional care providers with many years of outdoor leadership experience. Students also receive adult CPR certification.
Wilderness First Responder (WFR) courses are typically offered for 2 University of Montana HHP 249 credits. (additional fee applies).
No course is completely safe or capable of operating without the risk of injury or illness. We encourage you to talk with our staff about risks inherent in our training programs before enrolling. With that in mind, the safety of our students and staff is our first priority. We make every attempt to provide the safest environment possible to teach our classes. We also recognize that activities, held both in but particularly outside of the classroom, contain inherent risks. By planning and monitoring these activities we try to minimize these risks. However, our students take our classes because they travel, work and live outdoors, away from immediate medical care. Our students want to learn to care for patients under less than ideal conditions, and Aerie believes that students learn best when they are involved in realistic, engaging scenarios and practical sessions. As a result we simulate these environments and head out to experience them during our classes as often as possible.
Not only does this course provide a unique and challenging learning environment it also offers an exciting cultural opportunity in one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in the world. The region is host to a fantastic array of adventure opportunities with limestone rock climbing on walls up to 850m high, canyoneering, camping and hiking amongst it’s 13,000ft peaks. Don’t miss this opportunity to receive you WFR certificate in a unique part of the world.
