Course Description

What is Taught? The SOLO Wilderness First Responder Refresher 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? Cost of $215 includes engaging instruction, certification 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.) 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: SOLO, Wilderness Medical Associates, Wilderness Medicine Institute, University of Vermont, Aerie Backcountry Medicine, ASHI, Wilderness Medicine Outfitters, Wilderness Medicine Training Center, and Remote Medical International.

What Should I Bring? WFR Refresher 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. They also need to bring additional outdoor layers for warming and treating patients. Lodging and meals are not included. Don’t forget to bring (or send in advance) copies of your current WFR card (and also CPR if you aren’t taking CPR with us at the end of Day Two). The WFR is not valid and can’t be renewed without current CPR. Here is a complete packing list. Directions to the course will be emailed following registration.

Train NEK offers First Aid, CPR, and Wilderness First Aid and First Responder courses.
