More Info

Here you can renew your Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification entirely online at your own pace. The recertification course 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 any new lectures or updates for the duration of your certification (2 years). This access will allow you to always be in the know about the latest in wilderness medicine.


Prerequisites

Proof of previous WFR certification must be submitted upon enrolling in this course. All WFR certifications from other wilderness educational organizations are accepted. Current CPR certification is not required to take this course; however, our WFR certification is only valid with current CPR certification. 


My cert expired. Do you have a grace period?

Yes! For WFR it's one year.
