About This Course

Recertify your Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification entirely online at your own pace.   


Time Limit for this course: Self-Paced

The only time limit for this course is that you must pass the final exam with an 80% or higher before your certification or grace period expires. After that, you will still have access to the course and any new lectures or updates for the duration of your certification (2 years). 


Prerequisites

Proof of previous WFR certification must be submitted upon enrolling in this course. 

All WFR certifications from other wilderness education organizations are accepted. 

Current CPR certification is NOT required to take this course; however, our WFR certification is only valid with current CPR certification. 

Base Medical offers a remote, online CPR course for your convenience and safety. 

WFR Expiration Grace Period

Our grace period for an expired WFR is 1 year from the expiration date on the certification. 


Recertification Policy

Base Medical implements an alternating cycle of hands-on recertification to online recertification. This alternating cycle requirement means that students must participate in hands-on training every other recertification cycle. Hybrid courses qualify as hands-on training participation. 

Base Medical offers both Hands-On WFR Recertification and WFR Recertification with Practical Training Verification.

“I was really worried because in my area there is no where I can go to get a Re certification. The closest locations are normally a days drive away and I didn't have the time for that. So I searched for anything else that I could find to do my re certification and found Base Medical. I wasn't sure at first, but it was about my only option and I needed it done. The course material was very well done, the testing did an amazing job of reminding you of what was important, and I could go at my own pace. I think they went over some of the material better then the hands on courses I have taken at times. Thank you so much for creating this for those like me who don't have the option of doing hands on training.”

“I enjoyed the course overall! Having access to a 100% online re-cert is amazing and the information presented was clear and relevant. My only concern is grammar and spelling. Obviously this isn't a huge hang-up in the overall worth of a course, but as a professional organization, I would expect perfect grammar and spelling throughout the written information, and many mistakes jumped out at me. A good course overall, though. Thank you!”
