Course Description:


Wilderness First Responder (WFR) is the definitive course in medical training for outdoor educators, guides, SAR team members, and others who work or play in remote areas. The curriculum is comprehensive and practical, including all of the essential principles and skills required to assess and manage medical problems in isolated and extreme environments. The 5-day format is for individuals and sponsors with less time available for on-site training and requires 25 hours of pre-course preparation.

Students must register at least 2 weeks before the course date. All students must complete all pre-course work prior to arrival on course.


Course is offered in beautiful Boulder Canyon, just 10 minutes from downtown Boulder. World-class skiing, climbing, hiking, and so much more are available right outside the classroom. On site lodging options at the Adventure-Lodge are available, with discounted rates for WFR students.
