The Hybrid Wilderness First Responder Recertification (H-WFC) course fulfills all educational requirements to recertify a Wilderness First Responder (WFR). The H-WFC course combines 9 hours of online coursework with 2 days of onsite training. Due to the nature of the eLearning component of this class, it is geared towards self-directed and self-motivated learners who have experience in a virtual classroom setting.
Through a hands-on and scenario-based approach, this course offers the skills and confidence needed to make informed medical decisions when definitive care is hours away. The H-WFC onsite portion includes short lectures, interactive labs, and realistic practice scenarios that help students master the central concepts of remote medicine and effectively respond to an emergency if necessary. The H-WFC course and the 3 day, all onsite WFC course cover the same curriculum.
