The course combines 20-30 hours of online coursework with five days of on-site training.

Designed for the outdoor guide, Remote Site Team Lead or Military Team Lead, the H-WFR includes a range of introductory medical skills and topics, including patient assessment, lifting and moving patients, cold and heat emergencies, altitude, immersion, submersion, lightning, legal considerations, and more. Students also learn how to effectively manage basic wounds, infection, shock, head injuries, spinal injuries, respiratory and cardiac emergencies, abdominal pain, metabolic and allergic reactions, and altered mental states, for up to eight hours until a higher level of care can arrive.
