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. 


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.

This really helped me when I was in a pinch between geographic location and timing for re-certifying. ”
