Time to recertify your Wilderness First Responder certification? Review, practice, and stay on top of your skills with this three-day recertification course taught by our partners at NOLS Wilderness Medicine. In this course, you'll begin with a written exam followed by practice and review of wilderness medicine protocols, evacuation and decision-making guidelines, and learn the latest updates in wilderness medicine. Instruction will take place in classrooms and outdoor settings regardless of weather, be prepared for any condition. All certifications are current for two years. IMPORTANT: NOLS is requiring all students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 on all NOLS Wilderness Medicine courses beginning November 1, 2021. Students on courses beginning between November 1 and November 11, 2021, must have received the final vaccine dose prior to arrival at their course. Students on these courses who have not completed their two-week waiting period after receiving their final dose must submit a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the course start. Students on courses that begin on or after November 12, 2021, need to be two weeks or more past receiving the final vaccine dose prior to arrival at their course. Wilderness Medicine instructors will review student vaccination cards and/or negative COVID-19 test results at the start of the course. Please be sure to bring your vaccination card with you to your course.
