Instruction by Wilderness Medical Center

The hybrid distance learning project (DLP) Wilderness First Responder course requires completion of our home study program and four online exams prior to attending a five day practical session.

The DLP Wilderness First Responder is designed for students who are able to study the didactic material on their own using: our field manual, the course web site, and online tests. Access to a computer and the internet are mandatory; broadband/high speed access is required.

Personal Gear:

During your practical session you will be spending quite a bit of time outside (rain, hopefully sun, etc.) and will likely get very dirty during many of the skills sessions and simulations. Bring clothing appropriate to the weather. It should be tough and old enough to withstand a beating. You will also need to bring a notebook, pen, pencil, backpack, water bottle, a pair of heavy hiking socks, and two sets of old clothing that may be cut (two pair of long sleeved shirts, two pair of long pants, and two T-shirts). “Cutable”clothing is required for simulations and practice.
