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).

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.


Recertification is only valid with current NREMT EMT License, CPR certification and proof of previous WFR 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 certification expired. Do you have a grace period?

Yes! For wilderness first responder it's 1 year.
