More Info

Here you can renew your Wilderness EMT (WEMT) certification completely online at your own pace. This will save you time and money while also allowing you to review each topic to its fullest. By the end of this course you will have your recertification and you will be a much more knowledgeable wilderness medical provider.


Time Limit for this course:  Self-Paced

The only time limit for this course, is that you must take the final exam before your certification or grace period expires. After that, you will still have access to the course and to any new lectures or updates for the duration of your certification (2 years). This will allow you to always be in the know about the latest in wilderness medicine.


Prerequisites:

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 cannot be applied to NREMT for continuing education credits. However, that will change very soon! 

All WEMT certifications from other wilderness educational organizations are accepted.


My certification expired. Do you have a grace period?

Yes! It differs for each level of recertification. For WEMT or REMT it's 1 year.
