Participants must also be 14 years of age on or before the last scheduled session of the course.

What you get when you enroll in this WFR course:
Online Access to WFR Training Self-Paced Learning Management System (LMS). All of the didactic portion of the course is completed online in the LMS. This includes recorded lectures, videos, quizzes, exams and interactive activities. 

We are currently using American Red Cross Wilderness and Remote First Aid ebook, Emergency Medical Response ebook & CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer ebook for the WFR course. 

24 Hour Instructor Helpdesk:
Students can use email, live chat or the LMS chat system to communicate with instructors 24 hours a day. Typically a live instructor is only available during normal business hours, but leaving a message will ensure a prompt reply. In cases where a student needs to speak to an instructor by phone, we will be happy to arrange a time to call you.

Skills Verification:
The final portion of the WFR course is the skills assessment. It is the student's responsibility to have skills sign off by an EMT Instructor. 


We will be following the CDC’s recommended guidelines to keep our employees and students safe. In addition, we are taking the following precautions:

All workers will have their temperature taken before entering the building. Workers will sanitize and disinfect shared services frequently. 

We encourage our students to wear masks or facial coverings, wash/sanitize their hands before coming to the building, and — most importantly — stay at home if they are feeling sick. The most important thing is to make sure we conduct training in a safe environment.

All meals are the students' responsibility.

We will be spending a lot of time outdoors and we hope that you will want to enjoy some of the exciting outdoor activities when you are not in class. Hunting, fishing, wildlife adventures, kayaking, bear tours, sightseeing, and more. So be ready! The course will be held rain or shine, so participants should bring rain gear and warmer layers to account for unexpected cold or precipitation.
