COURSE DESCRIPTION

What is Taught? The SOLO Wilderness First Responder Review is an intensive two-day course covering the standard WFR curriculum as well as new wilderness protocols. It is fast-paced, with a mix of traditional classroom sessions and hands-on practical skill sessions and outdoor scenarios to help you maintain the confidence to make critical medical decisions in a wilderness setting.

What is Included? Tuition includes engaging and personalized instruction, SOLO WFR recertification fee, and training materials. Need CPR? We hold an optional CPR course at the end of Day One for an additional $40. (Your WFR is not valid without current CPR certification.) SOLO WFR certification is good for three years.

*After three re-certifications, students are advised to again take a full WFR course, particularly if you are not active in the field.

Who is This For? This course is for students whose current, expiring WFR certification is from an organization having reciprocity with SOLO including Aerie Backcountry Medicine, ASHI, Desert Mountain Medicine, NOLS/WMI, WMA, Wilderness Medicine Outfitters, Wilderness Medicine Training Center, Remote Medical International aka Remote Medicine, and UVM. After you have registered, we’ll email you requesting a copy of your expiring WFR and most recent CPR cards. (Remember WFR is not valid without current CPR, so please either renew prior to the WFR Review, or register to take CPR with us at the end of Day One.)

What Should I Bring? WFR Review students are asked to bring clothing suitable for being active outside (i.e. rolling around on the ground pretending to be injured, and kneeling next to mock patients) for much of each day, in any kind of weather. You should also bring additional outdoor layers for warming and treating patients. Lodging and meals are not included. Here is a complete packing list. Directions to the course will be emailed following registration.
