The Wilderness Module is a 5-day program that focuses on emergency care protocols when separated from definitive care by distance, time or circumstance. This class is fast-paced and designed for students with an advanced knowledge of patient care, but who seek a better understanding of wilderness and backcountry protocols and procedures. Successful completion of this course upgrades current street first responders, doctors, nurses, and PAs to the WFR level, and current EMTs and paramedics to the Wilderness EMT (WEMT) level. This course does not include CPR. American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) CPR and AED courses are available for an additional $40.
