Time Limit for this course: Self Paced

What is included in this course:
This WEMT focuses heavily on the critical thinking needed when caring for a patient in the wilderness. Our curriculum is at the EMT level, unlike most other traditional recert courses that are at the WFR level only. This course also includes printouts and downloads for your medical kit, video lectures and demos, and more.
Recertification is only valid with current NREMT EMT License, CPR certification and proof of previous WEMT certification. This recerts the "W" of your WEMT, you are still responsible for renewing your NREMT EMT License. At this moment, our course can not be applied to NREMT for continuing education credits. However, that will change very soon!
My cert expired. Do you have a grace period?
Yes, we do! It differs for each level of recertification. For WEMT or REMT it's 1 year.
